UPDATED 7/4/2019 to add Harbour Island (Zone 2 of the Waterways Maintenance Assessment District).
As previously posted by CivicMic, the City of Oxnard held a Council meeting on June 18, 2019 at 6:00 PM in the Council Chambers located at 305 West Third Street, Oxnard. The Agenda included public hearings for the setting and approval of various assessment levies for Fiscal Year 2019/20. The levies fund the maintenance of public improvements at various communities throughout the City.
The City’s contractor provides a “B” maintenance level of service to twenty-eight (28) of the City’s thirty-six (36) maintenance assessment districts. The revenue collected from eight (8) of the maintenance assessment districts and one (1) zone (Harbour Island) of the Waterways Maintenance Assessment District is not sufficient to provide a “B” level of service. Low Service Level: The eight Districts and one Zone with corresponding maintenance levels of service are listed below.
- LMD No. 11 (St. Tropez) – Maintenance Level F
- LMD No. 13 (Le Village) – Maintenance Level D
- LMD No. 14 (California Cove) – Maintenance Level D
- LMD No. 16 (California Lighthouse) – Maintenance Level C
- LMD No. 23 (Greystone) – Maintenance Level D
- LMD No. 24 (Vineyards) – Maintenance Level C
- LMD No. 27 (Rose Island) – Maintenance Level D
- LMD No. 53 (Huff Court) – Maintenance Level D
- Zone 2 (Harbour Island) of Waterways – Maintenance Level D
Important: The eight (8) maintenance assessment districts and one (1) zone are already being levied at the maximum amount allowed per their respective formation documents. An increase in the annual charge to provide a “B” level of service must be approved by the affected residents. The City can’t increase the assessments or form a replacement district without resident approval.
The public hearing held on June 18, 2019 for the maintenance assessment districts and regular Council meetings are a great opportunity for the public to comment on the maintenance levels of service, budgets, and assessments. This is particularly important for the eight (8) Districts and one (1) Zone listed above as the City evaluates the situation and possible next steps. Are property owners interested in increasing the assessments and levels of service? Attend the public hearing and Council meetings to speak during public comment. Let your voice be heard!
