COVID-19 Landscape Maintenance Districts Update as of 3/25/2020

Yesterday, we had the opportunity to talk to Jeri Cooper of the City of Oxnard Special Districts Division and hereby provide a COVID-19 Landscape Maintenance Districts update on the maintenance activities being provided by City staff and landscape contractors.

  • City landscape maintenance inspectors are working but practicing social distancing.
  • Landscape contractors (Garcia's Landscaping and BrightView Landscape) are working at communities throughout the City based on their respective schedules but practicing social distancing.
    • Click here to find the landscaping schedule applicable to your community at our Data Center. Our Data Center also contains other valuable information such as:
      • The latest annual report for the Landscape Maintenance Districts describing the geographical areas being served, the specific landscaping and other public improvements being maintained, afforded maintenance service level, budget, and methodology for the calculation of the annual assessments that appear on the property tax bill.
      • Link to the City's inspection reports.
      • Description of the maintenance service levels.
      • Special Districts Division organizational chart.
      • Important facts for each District including the formation date, description of the annual assessment inflator (if any), maximum assessment, actual assessment levied, parcel count, and much more.
      • Maps of the improvements and boundaries for each Landscape Maintenance District.
      • City demographics and key facts.
  • Special projects such as replanting are on hold at this time.
  • City parks and playgrounds are closed.

Though efforts have been delayed, the City remains committed to engaging constituents in a collaborative effort to find and implement solutions for the revitalization of public improvements in and around various neighborhoods in the City thus protecting real estate values and enhancing the quality of life for its residents. A survey of Oxnard residents identified the landscaping on the perimeter and medians surrounding neighborhoods in Oxnard to be a major concern.
