INCO Board Meetings – Harbor Presentations by HBCA and Developers

HBCA has retained consultants and specialists to review documents and procedures in regard to the proposed development at Fisherman’s Wharf.

On Feb 1, 2017 HBCA presented to INCO on the development proposed for Fisherman’s Wharf in Channel Islands harbor.
The presentation indicated that the proposed development presents many inconsistencies to policies in the City of Oxnard’s Local Coastal Plan (LCP).

The board of INCO thanked the presenters and made and passed a motion to invite the developers to present at a future meeting.

On March 1, 2017 the developers responded with a presentation thanking the board for the opportunity to respond.

There were many questions and comments following both presentations.

The INCO board voted unanimously at the end of the meeting on March 1st to send a letter to the City and the County opposing the development.

In the event the links below do not work please see:

I have re-posted the following in order – March 1st was the first presentation and Feb 1st was the developer response.

About INCO

The 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.
