ReNew Oxnard: Measure E Slides

The City of Oxnard has been working with CivicMic and Oxnard communities to figure out the most optimal funding solutions to help revitalize the City. One funding solution that has been approved is Measure E. The City Council approved $5.6 million in Measure E funds for restoring parks, trees, and median maintenance beginning on July 1, 2021. In this post, CivicMic shares the informational Measure E slides. These slides go further into detail about what these funds will be used for.

  1. Is the 5.6 million dollars of the measure E funds the city approved being used just for 2021 landscaping maintenance ?
    Since the landcaping maintenance is already the city’s responsibility why is the city only using measure E funds for the maintenance ?
    The landcape maintenance is suppose to come out of the general fund.. Oxnard is not being properly managed as no city in Ventura county looks as bad as Oxnard.

    1. Hi Jeff,

      For several years, the City needed to make budget cuts in the Parks operations in order to balance the City’s budget. In 2018 alone, the Parks Division was cut $1.5 million. Additionally, there is a large amount of deferred maintenance as a result of the long-term budget restrictions.

      With the passage of Measure E, the City Council prioritized the restoration of maintenance throughout all of our parks and street landscape. About half of the $5.6 million is for citywide contract maintenance. Four contracts are for weekly mowing of the City parks. Three contracts are for the monthly landscape maintenance of the City arterial streets and another three contracts are for the tree maintenance. In 2018, 14 full-time maintenance employees were eliminated from the Park Division. This City does not have a Streets Landscape Division. Therefore, it has been the parks responsibility to maintain the citywide landscapes. Using contractors for the street landscapes allows the Parks staff to focus their efforts on the deferred maintenance of park assets.

      The remaining $3+ million of the $5.6 million is far park facility improvements including new benches, tables, trash cans, drinking fountains. Additionally, staff will be repairing and replacing playgrounds, irrigation systems, and sports fields.

      Yes, landscaping maintenance is the City’s responsibility, but prior to Measure E, the City’s General Fund was not adequate for sustaining all of the City’s services. Public Safety always comes first and all other services are subject to cuts. Attached is a link to a presentation that the City Manager made to the City Council in October 2020 regarding additional cuts if Measure E does not pass.

      Hope this helps.
