Landscape in Mandalay Bay


The next Landscape meeting will be held March 16th, 2017 Thursday – 9 AM

Keith Beckwith our Landscape Committee chairman has scheduled a follow-up meeting on landscape issues and concerns with William Smith, City of Oxnard.

We hope to have more information of a number of issues raised at the Landscape meeting in February plus items submitted following the Annual meeting:

1) Vendors and process for removal of greenery hanging over seawalls
(Greenstrips and private property)

2) Dead Tree removal status update.

3) Removal of liability issues (swings or other playground equipment are not allowed in greenstrips due to insurance liability issues)

4) Communication with homeowners: Please do not leave trash receptacles or anything in the greenstrips that would block landscape workers.

5) Information about Statement of Work included with Landscape bidding.

AND MORE!!

If you are unable to attend, you can post questions or concerns on Nextdoor or BELOW

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 Keith@keith4beach.com

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!

UPDATE 7/13/16: That price may increase – The city renewed the contract with Kaneko Landscaping Services, Inc. for Eight
Maintenance Assessment Districts (5/10) OURS IS NOT INCLUDED: Kaneko Landscaping Agreement.
We want feedback before our renewal occurs!

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.”

  1. Neighbors on our street paid a gardener to clean up the greenstrip and cut back overgrowth on the seawall – because it seems the crew from Kaneko just mows the lawn and runs over sprinkler heads. I have pictures!

  2. I live at Harbour Island on the Linear Park..our landscaping has never looked worse than the last two years and we have lived here for 18. There are overgrown weeds, overgrown and untrimmed shrubs, dead plants, dry patches in grass, arid and barren planters, clogged and missing sprinklers, and untrimmed palm trees, to name a few. Please do something. It is an embarrassment to our community!

  3. Please remove the dead trees from the growth along Harbor Blvd to Eastbourne Bay. Many of them have exposed dead root balls and are laying on top of living trees and shrubs. While the dead ones may not be replaced soon, it will allow the living trees and shrubs a chance to survive and not cause the area to look further derelict.

  4. We have a large dead tree opposite our home on W. Channel Islands Blvd. near the bridge. I would gladly help pay for an appropriate tree to be planted if that one would be removed before it falls over. Also, the trees need to be trimmed next to the bridge so that drivers can see the stoplights at the crosswalk at the intersection of Harbor and W. Channel Islands next to the bridge. Thanks
