Improving your neighborhood one District at a time!
The City of Oxnard (the “City”) uses 1911 Act and 1913 Act Assessment Districts, Community Facilities Districts and Landscape Maintenance Districts to finance public improvements and services throughout the City of Oxnard. Property owners within these districts are levied an annual special assessment/special tax on their Ventura County property tax bills to pay for their portion of debt service for bonded districts and/or to fund their share of the annual cost of services provided by district. Proceeds from the special assessments/special taxes are used to ensure that the public improvements are constructed and/or acquired and that public improvements are properly maintained.
The interactive map below will allow residents to identify if they live within a Special Financing District and link to more detailed information regarding the District they live in.

October 12, 2022 – Tentative Court Decision
The Ventura County Superior Court issued a tentative decision regarding funding of special district service level community engagement (available here) in the matter of Moving Oxnard Forward vs. the City of Oxnard. The Court determined that the use of Landscape Maintenance District (LMD) funds for community outreach services does not fall within the use of incidental expenses as defined in the Landscape and Lighting Act of 1972. A final decision by the court is expected within the next 30 days.
