Oxnard: Ormond Beach movement makes further progress

By George Miller

On June 17, the Oxnard City Council appointed Walter Fuller as Ormond Beach’s first-ever official Caretaker. He will upgrade his living quarters from a 20′ cargo container to a trailer purchased for him, which will be installed on site around July 1st. A previous $50,000 city appropriation financed this and several other improvements, such as a gate, signage, road repairs and brush clearance.

The 700 acre ocean front site, sandwiched between Pt. Mugu Naval Air Station (Naval Base Ventura County), Agromin, Mandalay Beach Power Plant (NRG) and sod farms is an amazing resource, with dunes, tidal estuary, tidelands and canals.  Over 250 bird species have been sighted and documented there. Dolphins and seals frolic right off the beach. Master gardener Nancy Pederson handles the flora on the North side of the site, which may someday become a city park.

Visit by taking Hueneme Road South to Arnold Rd West, to the end.
