Oxnard Fisherman’s Wharf Project Stalled

By George Miller

(Bulletin only- Full story follows later)

On 11-7-19, the Oxnard City Council voted 6-1 (Madrigal dissenting) to approve a staff (and 6-0 Planning Commission) recommendation to reject a proposal to modify its Local Coastal Plan (LCP). This would have helped to allow a highly nonconforming project to redevelop the Fisherman’s Wharf (FW) site. During the 4 1/2 hour meeting, they heard testimony from the County, developer, staff, (Channel Islands) Harbor & Beach Community Alliance and the public on a proposed Local Coastal Plan amendment sponsored by the county. There at least 20 Local Coastal Plan regulations that it conflicted with, plus a number of California Coastal Commission requirements.

This effectively stops the project in its current configuration unless a compromise is reached.


Stay tuned for the full story.

Thanks for listening to our concerns! A project is needed but NOT a take it or leave it project by a developer that wants special considerations and the relinquishment of rights to Public Land on the Coast! Let him propose a development in an infill area downtown Oxnard.

I just walked my Dog at channel islands Harbor. It use to be alive with people but now it’s a ghost staring out at nothing.

Thank you Oxnard City for listening and having good sense to see this monster project for what it is.
Lets get Madril out of office and make this a 100% agreement.
