Meadowcrest Villas Budget for 2020-21

Meadowcrest Villas Budget for 2020-21

As recently posted by CivicMic, the City of Oxnard Maintenance Assessment District levies were approved for Fiscal Year 2020-21 at the June 2, 2020, Council meeting.  The approval included the Meadowcrest Villas budget for 2020-21 funded by Landscape Maintenance District No. 54 ("LMD No. 54") assessment levies.  LMD No. 54 was formed in March 2006 and currently funds the maintenance of the interior public improvements at a "B" maintenance level of service for the Meadowcrest Villas community.  A "B" maintenance level of service means the improvements are maintained every 2 weeks.  Please see the links below for a description of the maintenance levels of service.

Maintenance costs, including utilities, have significantly increased over the years and the maintenance of the exterior public improvements (perimeter, parkways, and medians) surrounding the Meadowcrest Villas community is now funded from the City's General Fund and not LMD No. 54 assessments.  Lack of funding from the General Fund has resulted in a lower maintenance level of service for the exterior improvements.

Important:  Proceedings to fund the maintenance of the exterior improvements (perimeter, parkways, and medians) must be approved by the Meadowcrest Villas community. The City can’t proceed without the community's participation.

  1. LMD No. 54 is over funded, can we extend services to A street mediums? The cost to maintain that tiny strip of grass is too expensive (actual work performed), the city should do a better job at reducing cost.

    1. Hi Fernando,

      It depends on how “A” Street is classified by the City. In short, the assessment district as is can’t fund the maintenance of improvements on major streets with lots of pass-through traffic. But let me find out what that section of “A” entails. In regards to reducing cost, please note that the landscaping/maintenance contracts go out to bid through the City’s procurement process to ensure low and qualified bids. The Special Districts Division has been very good at putting out the contracts to bid often, unlike in the past, and that should help in reducing costs. I will keep you posted regarding “A” street. Thanks!

  2. Please keep me posted on A Street. FYI A street, this particular sections is has very low traffic, it is residential.

    Thank, Fernando

    1. Hi Fernando,

      I received a quick response from the City. Yes, this section of “A” Street appears to be very much for local traffic and worth considering. Please note that I have checked the original documents and this section of “A” street was not included in the assessment district from inception – kind of interesting. I am going to make a note to discuss the possible inclusion of this section of A Street, along with a planter on Petaluma, and of course, the perimeter landscaping and trees on Oxnard Blvd when we meet with Meadowcrest Villas individually. Our first meeting will be with everyone to go over the program, but these specific additions and how to include them will be the topic of the neighborhood meetings that will follow. Thanks for bringing this up to my attention.

  3. We should include all sections as you noted: section of A Street, along with a planter on Petaluma, and of course, the perimeter landscaping and trees on Oxnard Blvd. We want to have a complete solution that will be satisfactory to all parties. Please keep me posted. Thanks.
