A few notes to clarify the relationship between the City and the County and the Harbor Department. NORTH and SOUTH of Channel Islands Blvd. The entire Harbor is within the City of Oxnard. The City is within the County of Ventura. The Ventura County Harbor Department manages 310 acres comprising the Channel Islands Harbor, 200 acres on land, and 110 acres under water (South of Channel Islands Blvd). The Channel Islands Harbor is owned in fee and operated by the County of Ventura. The majority of the Harbor is operated by businesses that have been granted long-term ground leases by the Board of Supervisors. Funding for the Harbor Department comes from those leases SOUTH of the bridge. The Harbor and Property NORTH of the bridge is NOT a part of the service area funding of the Harbor Department. Harbor Patrol north of the bridge ceased when residents in Seabridge passed a ballot measure to cease funding for Harbor Patrol. There is a new agreement and the City of Oxnard, the County of Ventura, and the Harbor Department are on good terms. The original 1983 agreement between the parties expired and a new agreement is in place, however it does not include any agreement for Harbor Patrol.
