How Does Our Homeowners Association Work

We’re a Little Different – The Channels Islands Waterfront Homeowners Association (CIWHA) is lead by an All-Volunteer Board of Directors and Committee Members, which are voted on by the homeowners annually. So how are major projects like seawall studies, monitoring and repairs, landscaping,
water quality, dredging and such things paid for ?

WELCOME to The Channel Islands Waterfront Homeowners Association

REPRESENTING MANDALAY BAY HOMEOWNERS

ABOUT US The Channel Islands Waterfront Homeowners Association is a volunteer organization composed of homeowners who reside within the Mandalay Bay portion of the Channel Islands harbor. There are approximately 700 single family homes within the Mandalay Bay. The Association’s primary mission is to serve as a liaison between the local government agencies and the homeowners. Over the years the Association has brought homeowners together and has been responsible for efforts to beautify, enhance, and protect the area. Currently, our primary focus is to work with both the City of Oxnard and the County of Ventura to ensure the maintenance of our seawalls and the quality of the water within our harbor.

Crime mapping helps the public get a better idea of the crime activity in their area so they can make more informed decisions about how to stay safe. Community Crime Map goes beyond crime mapping by automatically alerting the public about recent crime activity and by improving communication between the public and law enforcement through anonymous tips.
