In this post, CivicMic will focus on the City of Oxnard perimeter and median landscaping.
CivicMic has received responses from the survey on the maintenance of public improvements such as landscaping. The City wishes to engage 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.
The survey responses will be used to identify concerns, gauge the level of interest of participation in the process, and to prioritize the scheduling of community meetings.
November 5, 2019 Update: The survey is now closed.
We have received many good questions from the survey and anticipate receiving many more but the most common questions by far are about the Oxnard perimeter and median landscaping.
Who pays for the maintenance of the City of Oxnard perimeter and median landscaping?
The maintenance of the City of Oxnard perimeter and median landscaping is paid from the General Fund and not the Landscape Maintenance Districts ("LMDs").
Why does the landscaping on the perimeter and medians around neighborhoods in the City look so bad?
The City's General Fund has not been able to keep up with the rising cost of maintenance, plant materials, and utilities for the perimeter and median landscaping. Consequently, the level of maintenance has been reduced.
The LMDs only fund the maintenance of landscaping inside the neighborhoods with an LMD and up to the level of maintenance possible from funds received through that LMD.

Important: The main purpose of the survey has been to collect email addresses and get everyone involved in the discussion thus ensuring a high level of participation from each neighborhood. No conclusive decisions are being made from the survey other than finding out what neighborhoods are interested in meeting so we can prioritize our meetings. We want as much representation from each neighborhood as possible so all views are heard and decisions are made by a large representation of each neighborhood.
