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!

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
