Located on the beautiful Southern California coast, the City of Oxnard is the largest and most populous city in the County of Ventura with over 200,000 residents. Nestled about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 35 miles south of Santa Barbara, Oxnard prides itself on its rich diversity and culture. Although agriculture remains a major industry, Oxnard enjoys an expanding economy based on a hea...lthy combination of agriculture, commercial and manufacturing development, tourism, and the U.S. Navy.
Oxnard’s 2030 General Plan strikes a balance between the beauty of the City’s agricultural heritage, while continuing to accommodate dynamic changes. Residents enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life enhanced by the clean air of this coastal community, the charm and solitude of the nearby Los Padres National Forest, and the cultural and educational amenities of a vibrant urban setting. This very diverse community includes acres of new housing. Local assets include two thriving military bases, a full-service deep water port, master-planned industrial parks, prime commercial and retail sites, a regional medical center and hospital, and a flourishing community college.
The population has grown significantly in the last fifty years, providing many challenges to local government and residents. Oxnard continually offers many opportunities for its enterprising and forward-thinking business community. As Oxnard has evolved through all these changes, it has worked hard to maintain a “business friendly atmosphere.” In the fall of 2012, The Collection at River Park, a high-end office and retail shopping center with a state-of the- art multiplex cinema, opened in the northern end of the City. While the City maintains steady growth with new development, it also promotes the preservation and economic health of its historic downtown. The long-awaited construction of the Oxnard Boulevard and Rice Avenue Interchanges at Highway 101 and Santa Clara River Bridge provides easier access to the City from all points. The City also operates more than 50 park facilities for its residents, as well as special-purpose facilities such as River Ridge Golf Course.
