The Inter Neighborhood Council Organization (INCO) is designed to:

See: https://www.oxnard.org/inter-neighborhood-council-organization-inco/

The Oxnard City Council initiated the Inter-Neighborhood Council Organization (INCO) to give residents the opportunity to participate in governmental decision-making processes.

The INCO encourages Oxnard residents to form neighborhood councils to address issues and needs that are important to community members.

The INCO, in turn, serves as an advocacy group for each of the neighborhood councils. The INCO is made up of the chairpersons of each active neighborhood council, ensuring that residents from each neighborhood have a voice.

The INCO assists the neighborhood councils in communicating with the Oxnard City Council and City staff, and helps the neighborhood councils achieve their objectives.

The INCO holds meetings the first Wednesday of each month, serving as a forum for neighborhood council participants. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, 305 W. Third St.

The INCO meetings are broadcast live on Oxnard CityWatch Television. Time Warner Cable subscribers can watch the meetings on Channel 10, and Frontier Communications customers can tune in to Channel 35.


We are your friends, neighbors and boaters. You’ve seen us educating and advocating for issues that impact our Harbor and Beaches. We speak up at Board of Supervisor Meetings. We circulate Petitions and write Letters to the City and County. Ask any neighborhood activist you will probably discover they are fellow HBCA volunteers.

Harbor&Beach Community Alliance was created to preserve public access to coastal land. Oppose Harbor and Beach development that is not in the interests of the community and the environment. Communicate with local community and government agencies to protect public safety and access.

The Harbor & Beach Community Alliance (HBCA) is not a 501(c)3 nor any type of corporation. It is a loosely organized grassroots community group and can endorse any candidate and take positions on issues. However, HBCA does not and has not fundraised for any candidate or political party or contributed any monies to a political candidate.

HBCA only fundraises to oppose the Fisherman’s Wharf Apartment Project per the Public Works Plan Amendment 7, a public interest issue.

Western Alliance for Nature is a different and separate organization and separate from any of HBCA’s activities other than it has allowed HBCA for this public interest issue to fundraise through their 501(c)3 corporation. The Western Alliance for Nature does not endorse candidates and has taken no position on this or any other election issues.

5 Replies to “Harbor & Beach Community Alliance”

  1. My Grand Father was Ronald McGregor Moore, the Honorary Mayor of all three beaches in 1927. My Mother, Billee Herbruck, grew up on Hollywood Beach and had her Realty office at 112 Los Altos from 1954-1989. I am a Coldwell Bank Realtor at 112 Los Altos, Hollywood Beach and writing the stories of Old monthly for the Hollywood Beach Cafe. I have placed them around the Harbor and all who work in the businesses agree….”We need to work together to get the businesses up and running again! I’ve worked with PYA in 2003 and in the 1980 with Anacapa Marine Center. In 1982 I was Co-Founder of The Oxnard All American Regatta that trained the 1984 Olympic Rowing Venue with 14 universities competing for the finish line at The Whale’s Tail! We now have NO gracious dining on the Harbor like Port Royal, Whale’s Tail or Lobster Trap! I question how Ventura Harbor has out done C.I. Harbor when we had the “Golden Egg” with government dreading to help! “Where is a Bud Smith!”

    We need new management at the Harbor for businesses and for residents and visitors to enjoy healthy activities.. If I may be of any help please contact me at my office.

    With Gratitude,
    Suzanne “Suzy” Farrow

  2. Do you have the ability to tell me how much of my donation is used for administration costs please. I like knowing where $ go.

    1. 100% of the money donated to HBCA is used to pay Consultant and Attorney Fees.
      0% administration! 0% on overhead!
      The volunteers purchase envelopes, stamps, ink and other presentation supplies out of pocket.

  3. We are concerned about “pay for play” as is happening in L A County according to LA Times today, Sunday, July 30. The developers are in someone’s back pocket.

    1. Are you referring to this article? http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-campaign-money-reform-20170730-story.html

      and this: https://la.curbed.com/2016/10/31/13475940/sea-breeze-development-campaign-contributions-corruption
      and this: http://www.dailybreeze.com/government-and-politics/20150722/redondo-beach-poised-to-deny-mixed-use-proposal-for-sea-breeze-plaza-project

      THIS is why we are so in need of financial support for HBCA!
      The pockets of the developers are deep and they are adept at navigating the issues of developing in areas like our harbor. If they succeed this are will be impacted for the next 65 years – way past any of our lifetimes!

      Revitalization NOT Privatization!
