Martin Jones's Court Filing
Jones has already provided the Ventura County Grand Jury with some
juicy items which they are mulling over regarding other areas of
Oxnard City Government and 'their' interpretation of process.
The current new filing, which the City is considering at closed session on Feb. 25th, is herewith available by the above link.
At issue is the fact that the City of Oxnard did not do the minimum required public notice on Closed Negotiations on the THEATER PROJECT.
The Result: residents ended up with a 50-plus page jargon-filled paper that details how the City will lease the property for the theatre. In addition, the City will be on the hook for ONE MILLION DOLLARS per year should the Theatre not take in the money promised and YOU the taxpayer will supply these millions..
Again, who benefits - the developer ( David O. White, Expo Development Co., LLC [Downtown Theater] - who hedged his bets by donating to the front-line Oxnard City Council Candidates in last year's election ), gets the sweetheart deal plus a guaranteed ONE MILLION per Year for the term of the Lease.
OXNARD CITY Make-Over ::::::::::: Who is being left behind?
Oxnard, the largest big brother of all other Ventura County Cities is feeling a little left out.
Ventura gets a brand new downtown theatre and Oxnard wants to follow suit.
Oxnard gets a brand new Outlet and Camarillo follows suit and the threads are finer. Calling it an Outlet doesn't seem to work so they rename it the Oxnard Home & Lifestyle Center.
Ventura and Camarillo portend to be upper crust communities and what does Oxnard do?
Oxnard attempts to follow instead of lead. In order to be progressive
and more like their sibling sister sibling cities
Why do our newest housing starts now begin around $300-K?¿? - Porque ...? -
Where are we going with our housing costs. $1500.oo
per mo. now for a flat on Gonzo Blvd....ugh!
Assessment districts and zone taxing and money soaking for scenic live-planted road dividers are starting to get to us.
SO the City is looking to revitalize Oxland and bring it up a 'Notch' as Emeril would say.
The change of the Esplanade has saddened the senior citizens who used
to go for early morning walks in the mall.
How do you do that? How do bring Oxnard in line with it's upper-scale upstart neighboring communities?
A FACE LIFT is the answer. First option is to upgrade and up the price on new housing. Done!
Next is to target the eye-sores. The City is trying to do this, but at what cost and what result.
Improve the DownTown - build a theater and parking structure. Plans
for this are underway, but the local city watchdogs
When has that ever scared away a city planner or sitting Councilmember?
The theater, be it a good idea, is still not set in stone and the means to make this possible are still in flux.
The College Park (CP)
make-over, which technically should be complete because of plan
presentation is in more flux
The Downtown Boy's and Girl's Club
Street needed a Make-Over if you compared it to
it's newer sibling
Old Saints John of
Jerusalem Hospital on F and Doris Streets. This
monster of asbestos and concrete has been due
The Face Lift of Oxnard is strategically centered on the Northern
sectors of the City, obviously by-passing South Oxnard
Areas that need work and help, as seen by the OxJo are the following:
-- Oxnard Blvd. from 5-Points
-- Rice Road:
-- Rose Avenue:
-- The TMC Problem:
What does the City do to remedy the TMC problem?
How do you help? How do you make changes? Get involved. Attend City
Council, the Planning Commission,
bang bang boom-boom at Costco Monday. Said to be between two speeding cars.
