Rv Park

April 19, 1994
The citizens of Port Hueneme recently received a letter from Citizens to Protect Port Hueneme's Future. Part of the letter says that unless we pull together to support the RV park, the city will not be able to fund the Police Department. But the RV park's proposed income and the Police Department funding are two totally different issues. The city has plans to put police funding to a vote on an upcoming ballot, whether the RV park is approved or not. The city has never stated that any income from the RV park would fund the Police Department.

Buellton, 25 miles north of Santa Barbara, has been known for just one thing: split pea soup. For years, Buellton was that midday rest stop on the way to points north where you lunched at Pea Soup Andersen's. No longer in the shadow of trendier neighbors Solvang and Los Olivos, Buellton has taken on a life of its own. It's a fun place to stay, explore, eat and drink - and I'm not just referring to wine. The bed Buellton has at least one remarkable place to spend the night, the Flying Flags RV park (180 Avenue of Flags; [805]

I think Dorothy Ramirez and her so-called Citizens to Protect Port Hueneme's Future are doing a great disservice to our community by disseminating false and misleading information concerning the proposed RV park at Hueneme Beach. Her letter, which coincidentally made its way from Hueneme Road north, states, "The resort will bring in more than $400,000 per year." Apparently, Ms. Ramirez failed to consult the most recent edition of the city's new "Final Subsequent EIR," which projects $204,751 in its first year, not $400,000.

Smoke clouded the air and tourists headed for the road as a large wildfire in burned in southwestern Colorado on Saturday, though the threat to one small mountain town eased as the flames slowed.   The West Fork Complex fire, a convergence of three wildfires, has burned more than 53,000 acres. High winds and hot weather have hampered aerial attacks.  On Friday, dire warnings sounded as the flames moved within seven miles of the small tourist town of South Fork.  Residents received mandatory evacuation orders and the town was deserted by 10 a.m., except for fire engines and firefighters preparing to hose off burning structures.

At the recent city council meeting regarding the proposed Port Hueneme RV park, many of us left with feelings of deep concern over the bitter divisiveness here in our city. Nasty comments and jeers from both sides have been continually swapped in the long and intense battle. Our local residents that live right in front of the proposed site have experienced extreme property devaluation since the issue began, and in the event the RV park does go through, their values will most likely take an additional 30% decrease.

With our beachfront condo being listed on the real estate market, the hot summer month of August would certainly seem like a logical time to sell. Not so in the city of Port Hueneme. According to The Times' Economic Profile, we rate the very lowest in Ventura County. Home and condo prices came in at -23.8% below a year ago with beach properties down as far as 60%. The second lowest on the chart is the town of Fillmore, at -19.1%, which was practically demolished by the January earthquake.

Hooray for the article on "Board Assailed on Sewer Plan" (Westside, Dec. 14). This RV Park proposal was "slipped" in on us by the (Malibu-Santa Monica Mountains) land-use plan. But nobody ever remembered voting it in. It seems to me that the L.A. County Board of Supervisors considers themselves elite. "The Honorable" Deane Dana has no affinity for Malibu or its residents. I suppose he's never visited our beaches nor does he care! We want to keep our beaches public--not to a select group of RV clubs.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved additional improvements worth $900,000 at Dockweiler RV Park, located at the western end of Imperial Highway at Dockweiler State Beach. The improvements will include installing two prefabricated structures, one for a manager's office and community room, the other for dressing areas and a laundry room with coin-operated washers. Both buildings will have restrooms with showers.

The city of Port Hueneme will move to condemn five beachfront lots needed to build a city-owned recreational vehicle resort, the City Council decided Friday. An attorney representing three of the property owners asked the council to delay action until more public comment on the issue could be heard. But council members voted 4-0 to approve the move, saying they did not want to delay the progress of the RV park project. Councilman Ken Hess was absent.

The California Coastal Commission reversed a previous decision that would have allowed the city of Port Hueneme to build a 139-space recreational-vehicle resort on the municipality's only beach. The commission voted unanimously Thursday to rescind its Nov. 16 decision granting a final permit for the city to build the RV park. The decision came after the League for Coastal Protection--a nonprofit environment agency--sued the commission in January for approving the project.

Authorities are investigating whether some of the seven people arrested in a shootout that killed two Louisiana deputies may have ties to extremist anti-government movements, law enforcement officials told the Los Angeles Times. Deputies had been conducting surveillance on several of the suspects for more than two months and considered them armed and dangerous,  DeSoto Parish Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle said in an interview with The Times. Their surveillance led them to believe that several of those under watch held anti-government beliefs and were heavily armed, Arbuckle said.

Yvonne B. Burke, who left office as a Los Angeles County supervisor in 2008, has returned to the Hall of Administration as a registered lobbyist. Burke recently filed paperwork showing that she accepted $10,000 in January to represent East Shore RV Park, a company that leases county land to operate a campground on the banks of Puddingstone Lake near San Dimas. The company is seeking to expand the camping area into an area with a sensitive wildlife habitat, as well as extend the timeframe of its lease.

Riverside County businessman Stewart Hauptman's latest venture gives new meaning to the term "recreational drugs": selling medical marijuana from a souped-up RV parked outside a Norco clinic. He refurbished the motor home, installing display cases, several seats and other amenities. The Lakeview Collective-on-Wheels operated from a lot outside a clinic where people were being evaluated for medical marijuana use. "That way, when patients come out of the clinic, they are able to get the medicine right away," said Hauptman, a videographer-turned-cannabis-entrepreneur.

It's tough living in the shadow of one of the most recognized tourist attractions in the world. For decades, Garden Grove city leaders have tried to ride Disneyland's coattails by building their own tourist destination. There's been talk of a Las Vegas-like casino, a theme park on Latino history, a music-filled river walk; all died in the early planning stages. But that hasn't stopped city officials from putting tourism at the heart of Garden Grove's plans for the future.

A plan to restrict overnight parking won the strong support of Venice residents in a nonbinding election over the weekend. The plan still needs approval from the California Coastal Commission, which is expected to take it up in June.

Tough economic times have spilled onto the streets of Venice, which has become a favorite place to park for scores of otherwise homeless people living in cars and campers. The practice has ignited a mini-uprising among residents living in the pricey coastal community.

The Ventura City Council on Monday agreed to hold a hearing to decide how long campers must wait between visits to the Ventura Beach RV Resort, which was flooded in February. City officials and park owner Nancy Hubbard have different interpretations of a permit issued by the city. City officials say the permit does not allow anyone to stay at the park past 30 days, and after a visit, a camper cannot return for at least two weeks.

Ventura officials said Thursday that they will ask the City Council to decide how long campers may be allowed to stay at the Ventura Beach RV Resort. Everett Millais, director of community development, said he will request that the council clarify the wording on the park's operating permit later this month. The permit does not allow anyone to stay past 30 days, and a camper who leaves cannot return for at least two weeks, city officials said. But Nancy Hubbard, who owns the park at 800 W.

Life for campers at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa del Rey comes with whiffs of the nearby sewage treatment plant and the regular roar of jets from Los Angeles International Airport a mile away. But the recreational vehicle park's loyal patrons like the palm-tree-lined patch of asphalt, where they have ocean views and sand at their doorstep for less than $40 a night during winter. And they say they love its quirky community of renters.

Re "Parking program targets RVs," Feb. 13 Memo to homeowners associations in Brentwood and San Pedro: Unless you live in a private community, you do not own the street in front of your house. You can band together and purchase your street from the city if you want to exclude people you don't like from it, but you won't be able to go crying to your City Council member about potholes or street trees breaking your sewage line. As long as we're talking about parking permits, why does the city only grant them to local residents?
