Landscape in Mandalay Bay

TREES On Harbor

The city judged the trees as a hazard and is now removing them at their expense for now, they will charge the assessment district at a later date.

They have not been willing to release funds requested by the HOA board in order to re-plant, as they are hold funds for future seawall repairs.

We need somewhere between $35k-$50k to do the job correctly

We want to encourage homeowners to contact the City, the Mayor and City Council

Primary contact is Jeri Cooper

Oxnard City Council Members:

This will also most likely be on the agenda for the City Council Meeting on Dec 5th.
Please plan on attending!

It has come to our attention that a number of homeowners are maintaining the greenstrips because of a number of issues ranging from broken sprinkler heads, dead grass, dying trees, overgrowth etc.

Please report issues rather than try to correct them yourself.

Please post your comments at the bottom of this page!

Or contact Keith directly

We also would like to encourage you to try the 311 APP offered by the City of Oxnard:

Hey – we got a rock!

Keith (CIWHOA Landscape Rep) has been asking for a very long time if the city could not do something about protecting the sprinkler apparatus in the greenstrips because they get watered and mowed regularly – not good for little wires and small batteries. Keith has also asked (repeatedly) if there could not be some levels of reporting and accountability…

Look - a Rock!

Look – a Rock!

Close to half of or current assessment money goes to landscaping we certainly want to make sure this is money well spent!

If you have images you would like posted here please note that in your comments and we will get in touch with a way to get them posted.

This vendor was selected to maintain eight districts (see handout link below). Bert Perello says this is the same vendor who didn’t provide services adequately, but now at TWICE the price. Tree trimming, fence repair and landscaping quality were issues. Dan Rydburg says the scope is larger and inspection will be stringent. He blamed Oxnard mismanagement, but said he wasn’t involved at the time and may not have all the facts. The vendor has doubled the price and is said to be the lowest-priced “qualified bidder.” A discussion ensued on what constitutes a “qualified bidder.”
