Follow up to my last review - 2/19/2018
Hey folks, it’s Bob, back with an update since my review 3 years ago. I’m finally leaving CA , but I thought it would be nice to give an update and review some developments over the past 3 years. Here’s a rundown of happenings in my area (North Oxnard over the past few years: Tagging has become more prevalent (sidewalks, neighborhood fences, mail boxes and trees. Beer/liquor bottles and trash are left everywhere. Yes, much of the trash is from school kids, but the number of people throwing liquor bottles from moving cars or drinking and driving is insane. I’ve since stopped picking them up, but I was averaging 3-7 bottles a night. It’s also become obvious that some people have developed a habit of emptying their party trash bags on neighborhood sidewalks (30+ bottles usually). There’s also an inordinate amount of garbage left in front yards. For the past year or so, I’ve also been finding hypodermic needles and spoons in various areas. I don’t expect drug users to be considerate (and Read More

Shady people everywhere - 11/14/2016
But Oxnard takes the cake hands down. In reply to BOB. A real person living there in Oxnard. My reply to you is I hear you there. The one thing you didn't mention ( hopefully that means you one of the lucky ones) is that most of the under 35yr old population all have records and on probation. Ventura is like that too. But living in Oxnard 2004-2009 you saw a lot of bad policing and bad arrests made. I don't know how it is now. I learned to stay at home and have no friends. It seemed that if you weren't a local you got targeted by those you met to be the fall guy when ever they needed one. It's rough making friends in ventura county period unless you join one of the many groups of gang stalkers who prey on people just for the hell of it and steal peoples identity ( seriously) or belong to one of the street gangs.. and all of it is about the usual things.....like drugs stolen property bully tactics on innocent people, cops who do the same, going to jail, going to jail for nothing, & Read More

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 Read More

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 Read More

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 Read More
