I lived in Carp for 2 years. It's a very very small town right on the beach, but you are right next to Santa Barbara so it's ok. It's basically like living in Santa Barbara.

Well it has been 2 years since this discussion started. Has the op ever moved or was this thread an acedemic proposition? I have been to all three areas mentioned. I grew up in Port Hueneme and live in the North Oxnard area. Some on this post just don't have much love for my first home. I for one love Port Hueneme. Have never had a problem in the city or in the neighboring communities.

As far as the beach communities, Port Hueneme Beach is in the city of Port Hueneme. Oxnard Shores or the more modern name of Mandalay Shores, Hollywood Beach, and Silverstrand Beach are not in the city of Oxnards jourisdiction. If you watch the city of Oxnard's meetings on Tuesday evenings on cable it seems that many residents think that Mayor Holden and the rest of the councill can make changes to the beach area. They always inform those that ask that if they could changes would be made, but the questions regarding the Beach areas need to be brought before the County Supervisors as they have no jourisdiction within the city. Their is a movement to create a city with the Beach area and the western part of Oxnard, more particularly those in nicer neighborhoods such as Victoria Estates, Mandalay Bay, and places like that.

The beach areas are all diced up. Oxnard Shores and Oxnard Dunes ARE in the city of Oxnard, as is the entire beach to the Santa Clara River (border with Ventura). Hollywood Beach and Silverstrand are in the County. Parts of the Channel Islands Harbor are in the City of Oxnard, other parts in the County. The dividing line between the County and Oxnard is very strange. Along Harbor Blvd south of Channel Islands Blvd there are areas where on one side of narrow streets is Oxnard, the other is County.

The intersection of Victoria and Channel Islands is particularly interesting as four jurisdictions come together there in a "four-corner's" style -- PH (northeast corner), Oxnard (northwest), County (southwest), and the Federal Government's Navy Base (southeast corner). Guess everyone wants a piece of the good stuff!

Winston Smith, You are correct again with regards to the Oxnard Shores area. Note to myself to stop watching the City Councill meetings on the Cable access channel. I sometimes dose off after working all day. Don't always catch what is said. I had thought that the Shores was part of the city, but remember Mayor Holden telling someone that the Beach area was out of their influence. If I would have caught it correctly they were probably talking about the Hollywood or Silverstrand area and not the Shores.
