Oxnard, CA

Year round the weather rarely peaks 80 but usually stays around 70 and cooler. Ocean winds come mostly from the southwest and keeps the air clean of smog and lingering heat. Santa Ana winds do, however, play a part in mid to late October and beginning of November which brings winds to a strong steady wind and elevates temperatures to 80 and higher.

Oxnard Battalion Chief Terry McAnally said the fire appears to have been deliberately set, possibly in connection with a burglary of the residence. The house had been ransacked and vandalized with graffiti, he said, and there were signs of a forced entry. Neighbors reported the fire in the 900 block of Bluebell Street about 1:40 a.m. When firefighters arrived minutes later, flames had already swept through the single-story house and were burning through the roof. "The whole side of the house was just in flames," said 15-year-old Andy Medvigy (Convicted 911 Bluebell St Felony ARSON, felony BURGLAR Stephen Andrew Medvigy, NOW Thermopolis, WY FIREMAN (Convicted ARSON ALI - ASS,) STEVE Andrew Medvigy, aka Stephen Andrew Medvigy Jr, Two known Social Security #ā€™s,) , whose family lives across the street. "The whole street was filled with smoke. You couldn't even see across the street." It took firefighters from five engine companies about 30 minutes to extinguish the flames. "The house was pretty much destroyed," McAnally said. Officials estimated the blaze caused $125,000 in damage to the house and another $75,000 to the property inside. The woman who rents the house, Hatsue Fiedler, had been away visiting her son in Wisconsin since Thanksgiving, Medvigy and fire officials said. She was expected to return today or Monday. Medvigy said Fiedler had moved into the house several years ago with her husband, who later died. McAnally said the exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.

A real review from an actual resident - 3/5/2015

You'll see a lot of folks come on here to rip on the 'Nard. Judging from their descriptions, I'd say most either live in Ventura or up the grade in the Conejo Valley. First and foremost, I must state that what follows is my opinion of this place as a 15+ year resident (currently in my late 20's, hoping to leave) When people first hear of Oxnard or Ventura County, they immediately get notions of perfect weather, beautiful beaches and quiet communities. One month in Oxnard will likely shatter those dreams. I don't intend to run a list of complaints or rant (sorry if it seems that way), but someone needs to paint a realistic picture. First, let's talk about the weather. Yes, it never is truly too hot or too cold. As someone who has actually traveled significantly throughout the US and other regions around the globe, and have experienced and enjoyed every form of weather imaginable, there are really only two seasons here. Pseudo-summer and pseudo-fall. Usually, winters do see rain, but we've been far under our usual rain levels due to the drought (mandatory water conservation is in full swing) Now for the annoying aspects of the weather. It isn't all sunshine and gentle ocean breezes around here. Overcast days are generally the norm...think the Northwest without the rain. Warmer days are usually due to the annoying and very dry Santa Ana winds. The beaches themselves tend to be too cold and windy most days to enjoy. Next let's talk about the cost. For what you're getting Oxnard is far too expensive. Rent, housing, general cost of living. Sure, it's not the Bay or LA, but it's just not worth it. In fact, the entire county is overpriced, but that's due to the ever increasing demand for housing in the state. People leave the state in droves, yet the population is always increasing which leads me to my next point.... Immigration! Yes, you've seen the rants about Latinos on here. I won't get into racial or political debates, but Oxnard is definitely the "Mexican" city in the county. Demographics place the city at nearly 80% hispanic, and that's just based off the "documented" population. The city is mostly segregated into Colonia (entirely hispanic community), South Oxnard (vastly hispanic), old retirees (North Oxnard), areas around the military base/Hueneme (military/retired military/stray government contractors) and the beach homes. If you can afford a beach home, by all means go for it, but there are far nicer communities. Generally speaking, knowledge of Spanish goes a long way here. There are street vendors, fiestas, weak but loosely tied to La Eme street gangs (Los Chiques!), tiendas, panaderias, etc. We even have a multicultural festival, which basically means 10 different bandas playing the same music to a monolithic crowd. This goes hand in hand with the salsa festival, which switches from banda to salsa. A tad more fun, but along the same lines. Now onto crime. Is Oxnard as dangerous or notorious as Compton, Oakland, East LA, etc? Not by a long shot. Is Oxnard safe? That depends on your perspective. I see police every day. In fact, in the past month I've seen them respond to break-ins, shootings, a stabbing, car jacking, drugs, etc...all within one block of me. If you dig into crime around the county, you'll find that most of it originates from Oxnard. Sure, there's plenty of drug addled souls trolling the Avenue in Ventura, or the stray thief out in Simi, but Oxnard gets the lion's share. It's essentially on par with Santa Paula, except increased in proportion to its size. On a personal level, my garage has been broken into several times, as has my car...nothing like passing the weekend by getting a new window. The neighbors have had several break-ins as well their car has been stolen from the driveway a handful of times. Community...or the lack thereof. If you're not from here, you'll likely struggle to make friends. You may have to turn to the Conejo Valley or Ventura for any real culture or night life. Sure, Oxnard has a handful of bars strewn here and there. The city has tried to renovate downtown with mixed results. There's the decent theater that still hasn't turned a profit after 5+ years. A small collection of restaurants that change out faster than you can remember their names (I'm looking at you White Rabbit, Nawlinz, etc) What about clubs? Forget it, as a city this place is a disaster for young people. There's always Ventura, but you can only do Main St so many times before you know every bartender by name and see the same folks from high school over and over again. Really, your best bet would be to make the long haul to LA or Santa Barbara. And that leads us too.... traffic! I honestly believe that if you can drive here (or LA), you can drive anywhere. In Oxnard, especially on the main drags, you will not be getting anywhere quickly. I've seen traffic backed-up at all hours of the day (even in the wee hours of the AM). It seems as though there's a constant horde of people without jobs just driving all day long. Yes, you will need to carry uninsured motorist coverage, and yes you will need it. To Oxnard drivers...you do not need to stop 10 car lengths from the light, you're only screwing people further back. In a given week, I'd say I have close calls 5-10 times, mostly within a 5 mile radius of home. People drive like there is no gas pedal, and you will likely want to murder someone by the time you pull in after work. Rose avenue is the one of the worst roads in the county, which isn't helped by the army of semi trucks using it as a shortcut to thefew businesses in the industrial parks and stores on Rose. I spent several years commuting to the SF Valley and LA, and at least LA drivers can move with a purpose. Public transit is largely non-existent though we do have buses. I will say that the Metrolink to Burbank airport is pretty handy for avoiding the traffic or parking, but that's about it. Now...jobs! In Oxnard and the county in general, the most plentiful jobs are in retail or fast food. Other than that, you're either in agriculture, working at St Johns, in the military (Navy), a defense contractor on base, local government or unemployed. There are handful of businesses, but if you drive around any industrial park in the county, you see a ton of "space available" signs. Businesses, manufacturing, etc are leaving the area and state in droves. And who can blame them? In 10-20 years, CA will be nothing but the rich, poor and government workers holding out for their pensions. As I mentioned previously, housing here is atrocious, largely driven up by the groups of 5-10+ people living in one apartment, garage or granny flat. Occupancy rates are in single digits, so rent for a studio is creeping over the $1200 mark. Home prices...I won't even go there. Sure, it may not be as pricey as LA or the Bay, but for what you're getting...no thanks. Now let's see an overview of the county in general. In the Western portion you have Ventura, Oxnard and Camarillo (and Somis) Ventura is a typical So Cal beach town that grew a little too large. It's still fairly scenic though with an average downtown. Both V-town and Oxnard have a surplus of homeless, but most are pretty harmless. Ventura does have a rather large "skinhead" population. Go to any punk or hard rock show at the Ventura Theater and you'll see what I mean. Camarillo and the Conejo Valley (up the grade) is largely populated by older couples and the wealthy. A lot of folks work in Thousand Oaks, but you see the exodus during rush hour. There is always the Heritage valley up the 126, where you run into Santa Paula, Fillmore, Piru, etc. Not much to do out there, pretty rural. Ojai is small and artsy if you're into that sort of thing. Other than that, there's not much to the North except mountains and Lockwood Valley. So as far as things to do, you have some average hiking and the beach. Both get old pretty quick. Ventura County is largely built for farmworkers, retirees and upper middle class and upper class families. There isn't much of a singles scene to speak of. So, I guess that's it. Like I said, it's just my opinion, but I can vouch for a lot of people when I say that it's shared by many. If you're looking at moving here, be prepared for the cost, not-as-advertised weather, culture, lack of jobs, crime, traffic, etc.

Over development and poor city planning - 7/12/2013

Many folks go on here and rant about how the Mexicans ruined Oxnard, I can tell you as a non-Latino Oxnard Local my who has lived his whole life in this city, the problem lies in poor city planning. Yes, Oxnard was once segregated, with Generational Chicano gangs being a direct result from the alienation of this community by the racism of a bygone era but these gangsters do not exhist anymore. With the recent gang injunction many of these folks have long since disappeared. You may have kids that front gang culture, but many of them have no idea and do not carry the same ethics the cold hearted gangsters of the past believed in. As a matter of fact, most of the formerly segragated communities are occupied by newer Mexicans from the state of Oaxaca and speak the Mixteco dialect. These hard working people work 14+ hours a day 7 days a week and deserve the most respect from within our community for literally putting Vegetables on our table. The real culprit in lowering property values in this city is actually the nearby Naval Installation, which creates a high demand for rental units in the South Oxnard/Hueneme area. Not to mention most of the suburbs in this areas was developed and marketed towards transitioning service members between 1960 thru the seventies, many of whome retired and are renting out their property to sailors stationed here. So within these neighborhoods you have lower-income people that move in due to the low cost of rent [possible lowest in the county] and thats when you get the drug dealing and street hustling that people assume is Gangbanging, but are simply traits of any low income enclaves in the United States. There is simply a lack of opportunity for low income folks, and becuase the suburbs/apartments/condos in the area where built between the 60's and 70's when the baby boomer ideal was one car per house hold. The modern need of everyone in the household requiring a car ensures that every block has millions of parked cars lining the streets. The city of Oxnard should have noticed this trend, instead of building more suburbs to the North towards the 101 they should have focused on creating more sustainable buisness growth and better infrastructure in the south. And here in lies the problem, the city is more accomadating towards newer development in the North and newer middle-class inhabitants who commute to work thru the 101. The heart and core of this city lies in its agriculture and working-class immigrants. The youth I grew up with had a strong do-it-yourself ethic, with many dreaming of going off to college and comming back to Oxnards to make it a better place, thats the city I know and have faith in.

WORSE PLACE IN CALIFORNIA - 4/9/2013

Oxnard was a great place back in the 70's and early 80's. Then after that it just went Wayyyy downhill. An OVER abundance of mexincans mexicans mexicans. I'm not racist at all but dam. And not only that. There IS too much construction going on on the wrong things too. I remember them building the skate park. That is NOT a skate park over by Oxnard College. Santa Paula is a smaller place and has a much more interesting one. The racism with mexicans and blacks is so ignorant. The stealing, gangbabanging, people who pretend to be educated. Ventura isn't all that great either. You can surround it with pretty monuments and white people and pretend its the best tourist area in town. But what happens when they move there and find out there isn't a THING for kids to do out here, that isnt organized. The black people there are treated like shit. Every 2-3 out of 4 mexicans are illegal. And really, WHO CHOOSES FOR THE DALLAS COWBOYS TO PLAY IN CALIFORNIA????????? I NEVER EVER got that. Doesnt anybody recognize that one of the gangs there LIKES the dallas cowboys and has people in the city wearing these garments that the gangbabgers wear??? How stupid can you be? Thats because the relatives that are related to these bangers are getting in the government there. And making it ok. Dude, that is an out right stupid town. I bet if the blacks and asians were to run that city. It would be a lot better. Only thing I like about that place, is the burrittos...lol The schools are almost as worse as the gangsters out there. And if they are what street smarts is supposed to be. Good grief. So many people going to jail there that should have went to school. Ignorance is a terrible insult when you display that ignorance with no progression. I could go on and on and on and on about this town. Seriously, out there. They BARELY found out about craigslist a couple years ago. The welfare system there is a JOKE. Saving money for paticular people rather than anyone. The race BS there is way more than ridiculous. I was told that Oxnard, CA was the CUL DE SAC of California. I can't believe the posts I see of ppl that went there and had thier car broken into. Tweekers EVERYWHERE you go. You wouldnt believe the statements I hear about the school system. I remember Arnold Shwarzeneggar was supposed to visit there for a meeting at the pueneme police station. lol, he never showed up. DO NOT RAISE you kids there. Or Ventura. Unless you want them to learn to be ignorant, racist, and on drugs from lack of things to get involved in. I really don't mean to rip it apart like that. But too bad, it is what it is. And Dum is DUM.

Weather - 11/12/2012

Year round the weather rarely peaks 80 but usually stays around 70 and cooler. Ocean winds come mostly from the southwest and keeps the air clean of smog and lingering heat. Santa Ana winds do, however, play a part in mid to late October and beginning of November which brings winds to a strong steady wind and elevates temperatures to 80 and higher.

Living in Oxnard - 8/5/2012

Oxnard is a coastal city with excellent sub tropical weather 75 degree average year around, but a high cost of living. It is a great place to retire. A beutiful place to visit and see all kinds of sights just 27 miles south of Santa Barbara.

Don't be a beach addict - use your brain! - 1/13/2011

I see many reviews about the nice beaches. People write about how they feel perfectly safe in the lovely beach areas and say many things that might entice unwary people to actually come here. Don't! The people writing those reviews are beach addicts, and have probably had their brains fried from too much sunshine. Yes, beach addicts will be very impressed by the nice beaches in Oxnard, and the fact that you can have a house right on the beach, and the fact that there are bars on the beach, yada yada yada. But Oxnard is not a very nice place. Yes, I too have heard it referred to as "Northern Mexico", "Tijuana", etc. And it is a quite apt description. Yes, there are gangs here - LOTS. One reviewer wrote something to the effect that you can't say people are criminals just because they are Mexican, and that is true. There are Mexicans here who do not engage in any violent activity. And there are also Mexicans here who do. Are Mexican gangs "not that bad"? They are not in the slightest bit "not that bad"! Black gangs on the east coast are "not that bad". They usually don't kill innocent people. Membership requirements for joining a mexican gang range anywhere from just getting "jumped in" to killing a rival gang member to murdering an innocent civilian. Make no mistake, they are murder organizations, and should be avoided as best you can. Use your brain. Yes, there are "nice areas" in Oxnard. But does anyone really buy that people who live in the bad areas can't walk (or drive) 5 blocks to get to the nice areas? Of course they can. Do vatos like the beach? Of course they do, and they also hate the people who live on or near the beach. So, if you're a beach addict who just loves the Oxnard beaches, by all means, buy a house here. Come for the nice beaches, and stay for the Juarez style action! Should we embrace other cultures, as one poster said? It depends on the culture! Use your brain and keep your butt safe. California has nice beaches all along its coast. The coast of California is something like 1500 miles long, with many cities running all along the length of it, and -believe it or not- most of those cities don't have THAT much crime. Oxnard DOES. So, if you happen to find yourself in Oxnard and start to fall in love with the NICE beaches... take a picture. It's not worth living here, or even staying here more than a few hours. The worst bad neighborhoods are the ones that look like nice ones. I've walked through ghettos in New York and felt A LOT safer than I do living in the "nice part" of Oxnard. And yes, the city still has those horrible potholes. Take my word for it. I'm leaving Oxnard the MOMENT I get the means to do it. BTW, my comments about Oxnard do not apply to the rest of Ventura county AT ALL! The city of Ventura has even more beautiful beaches and way less crime! Thousand Oaks is a gorgeous city with hardly any crime and a great deal better access to L.A. than Oxnard, if you need it! Ojai has GREAT hiking and beautiful cold creeks and sulphur hot springs that the locals say may cure your various ailments, and a lot of famous movie stars have ranches there and the oranges that grow in the groves at Meditation Mountain are some of the most delicious you will ever taste. Ventura county is beautiful! Oxnard, however, sucks. Please stay away from Oxnard. (Unless you are a beach addict, of course).

Oxnard Remains One of the Safest Cities. - 2/22/2010

During the early 2000, Oxnard has experience a significant decrease in crime, such as violent crime, assults, rapes, and burgleries. Most recently, the Oxnard Police Department, and the District Attorney has imposed a court order gang injunction that covers six square miles of central Oxnard and another is being considered for south Oxnard. Since these injunctions were implemented, gangs are prohibit from being out on the streets after 10 p.m. If gangs are caught violating their curfew, they are immediately arrested by authorities. Those who say: stay away from Oxnard, needs to do their research before critizing Oxnard as an unsafe city to live, work, or visit. Yes, Oxnard has its problems with crime like any other American city, and to accuse Hispanics as the only ones who are committing crimes is false! Again, do your research people!

The truth about Oxnard - 1/1/2010

I have lived in this area since 1990 and its really a shame to see the city let itself go. The perfect climate, great access to the bigger city if you need it and escape to the beach the nearby Channel Islands and mountains. I am perplexed at Oxnard's lack of initiative to clean up the horrendous crime rate and to make it a safe place to live. Too much emphasis on writing fix it tickets for no front license plates rather than tackling the real crimes such as gang bangers and murder. The whole area is infected by gang scum that going to the Pacific View Mall in Ventura requires customers to wear a bullet proof vest and carry a firearm for safety. Constant stabbings, and it really gets worse near Port Hueneme area with murders. It is a shame because there are many great stores and nice areas, but if you're looking to move to Oxnard, stick with the areas closest to the river and beach. Anywhere else is really putting you and your family's life at risk. BTW, the roads will do a number on your car... new car in Oxnard? Not for long!! City does nothing to alleviate its pothole issues and the county is even worse.

Not safe - 3/28/2009

This place is called North Mexico.(My local friend said) About 80%? of people in this area are Mexican. School, education is really bad. Awful!! Lots mexican gangs living in oxnard. Local person told me "you shouldon't buy house because this whole town is ghetto." Lots of high price housing area are surrounded by ghetto. Winter is freezing cold to me even evening in summer. No job if you can not speak spanish. I hate this place.

Oxnard Beaches are Southern California's Best Kept - 10/7/2008

Crime in Oxnard is mostly kept to "certain" areas. Most of the outer lying parts of Oxnard are new and beautiful, and the beach areas are superb!! I don't feel unsafe living here at the beach at all! It feels like a small community where everyone watches out for each other. Everyone is out riding their bikes, skateboarding, walking, surfing, sailing, and playing in the sand!

Climate - 10/4/2008

As a resident of Oxnard for near 20 years and originally from Boston I find the climate here better than anywhere else. Temperatures do not fluctuate more than 25 degrees between summer and winter though with the amount of daylight changing you still feel a seasonal shift. You are within 1 hr of skiing in the mountains or sailing in the ocean. Living at the beach in Oxnard is like going home to paradise at the end of every work day. People wonder why I resist leaving on the weekends or going on frequent vacations. Every day living in Oxnard is like being on vacation.
