  2. Replacement Project Plant Proposal (Final)


Representatives from our homeowners association have met repeatedly with City employees, Finance directors, Council
Members, Public Works representatives, the consultants hired by the city – asking what could be done to correct this –
since the 90’s.

The City of Oxnard hired an engineering firm to perform an engineering analysis and presented the findings of studies of
the condition of our Seawalls to our HOA in 2006. It was during that presentation in 2006 that the City of Oxnard
informed our homeowners that the assessment funds were grossly inadequate to cover the required restoration and
repairs. The City did agree to a 50/50 split in 2012 which eventually allowed the project on Kingsbridge Way (completed
in 2015) but the rest of the high priority projects (to my knowledge) have tabled due to lack of funding. We HAD been
meeting with public works monthly for years ‐ until recently, Public Works has canceled those meetings and says we can
contact them if we have any questions or concerns – of course they cannot answer our questions, nor can they address
our concerns.

While it is obvious that the City needed a fresh look at old problems, and nobody expects anyone to “walk on water” ‐
we in Mandalay Bay are grateful every day that we are not required to – due to a failed seawall.


September 3, 2015: Letter to City Council and City Manager: Follow_up_Town_Hall_meeting.pdf

Mr. Nyhoff ‐ when Bill Clark and I met with you, a year ago last month, we had hope – it was agreed that this was an urgent matter that required attention… but then of course other matters have taken precedence.

The City of Oxnard knew that Mandalay Bay’s assessment was inadequate for covering expenses associated with the maintenance of the Seawalls. This knowledge was reflected in the arrangements for assessments in the Seabridge and Westport developments.

The residents of Mandalay Bay have been requesting clarification and assistance since 1976 on defining the scope of the

Waterway Maintenance District.


The City of Oxnard began the 20 Year Seawall Maintenance Plan in 1999

In the presentation by the city of Oxnard at our annual meeting in 2005 it was estimated that the replacement cost of the 7.8 miles of Seawall would cost $56,000,000 or $1,359.72 per foot. For the 743 properties in Mandalay Bay and that we did not have the required money for the budget or needed maintenance.
