RE: Channel Islands Public Works Plan Amendment No. PWP-4-CIH-16-0005-2

Dear Ms. Krieger:
Thank you for the letter submitted on September 8, 2017. However, the proposed Public Works Plan Amendment (PWPA), which addresses the Urban Village Sub-Category to the Visitor Serving Harbor Oriented land use designation at Channel Islands Harbor (Harbor) remains incomplete at this time, pursuant to Title 14, Sections 13352 through 13357 and 13365 of the California Code of Regulations and Section 30605 of the Coastal Act. In order to process the amendment in accordance with the provisions of the Coastal Act and the California Code of Regulations, please provide the following item that was requested in our previous incomplete letters dated August 24, 2016, September 29, 2016, December 15, 2016, February 21, 2017, March 28, 2017, April 18, 2017, May 4, 2017, and September 5, 2017:

1. City of Oxnard Local Coastal Program (LCP) Consistency. Given the proposed PWPA’s inconsistency with the City of Oxnard LCP, please provide evidence that the required amendment to the Oxnard LCP has been approved by the City of Oxnard and effectively certified by the Coastal Commission. We appreciate the County’s coordination with Oxnard to address the inconsistency with the proposed PWPA and look forward to working with both parties to address this issue. We are in receipt of your March 28, 2017 request for a dispute resolution hearing regarding this incomplete item, as well as your recent request to postpone the dispute resolution hearing until the October 2017 Commission hearing.

We are requesting the above information in order to deem the PWP amendment filed pursuant to Section 13354 of the California Code of Regulations. Please contact me at {805) 585-1800 if you have questions regarding the requested information.
