Pacific Coast Business Times: Troubled Waters for Harbor Plan
Monday’s meeting was meant to gather public input and allow Tellefsen and his partners to present their vision so that the city can determine the potential impacts. Although this is countyowned property, Oxnard has a role to play.
The Harbor & Beach Community Alliance does not oppose development at Channel Islands Harbor. We supported and continue to support the replacement of the hotel on Peninsula Road. We want Fisherman’s Wharf, which is the gateway to the harbor, revitalized but with the right development, one designed clearly for visitor serving and harbor related uses and with genuine public access as the priority.

As one of only 12 small-boat harbors left along the California coast, the Channel Islands Harbor is a rare and precious coastal resource within the city of Oxnard. Ventura County owns the harbor land and has shamefully allowed many of the moderately priced visitor-serving facilities, including Fisherman’s Wharf, the Casa Sirena Hotel on Peninsula Road and the Whale’s Tail restaurant on Harbor Boulevard, to deteriorate.
