Casa Sirena Project Update
The Public Works Amendment (PWPA6) adopted by the Board of Supervisors on March 22, 2016 was approved by the California Coastal Commission on July 14, 2016 and the Notice of Impending Development (NOID) was approved on June 8, 2018. Construction permits are ready to be issued pending resolution of a few minor items.
Brighton Management is in a Lease Option Agreement with the County of Ventura to replace the hotel and restaurant. After receiving California Coastal Commission approval of the project, Brighton Management is waiting for finalization of a street vacation from the City of Oxnard, the resolution of grading and Fire Department protection issues. Demolition of the old hotel is expected to start in Fall of 2018. The Lease Option Agreement calls for a 205-room hotel and a 5,000 + square foot restaurant. Meeting space will be contained within the hotel.
Fisherman's Wharf Project Update
Update posted 3/13/19
On June 14, 2016, the Board of Supervisors approved Public Works Plan Amendment #7, which allows for development of a mixed-use project at Fisherman's Wharf. The proposed Public Works Plan Amendment #7 is posted online, along with the Consideration of Environmental Factors. Click here to view reports.
The Fisherman’s Wharf proposed project is again moving through the process. The County has requested an amendment to its Public Works Plan in order to accommodate the project. In order for the Coastal Commission to approve the amendment, the City of Oxnard must also amend its Local Coastal Plan.
On March 6, 2019 the County submitted information to the City of Oxnard to complete the application for a Local Coastal Plan amendment. The most significant issue is whether residential units will be allowed at that location. The City of Oxnard’s 2030 General Plan, which was adopted in 2011, recommends mixed use (residential and commercial) for that area, so the County is hopeful that the City will amend its Local Coastal Plan to be consistent with its adopted 2030 General Plan.
