Santa Paula Getting its Own Sewer Plant

union oil co
The city of Santa Paula residents will no longer be paying the second highest sewer rates in the state. The Santa Paula City Council unanimously voted to purchase a waste water treatment plant for almost $71.0 million.

The vote came recently at their regular Monday meeting, and will save residents hundreds of dollars a year. The actual savings will depend on the interest rate of the municipal bonds used for the purchase. The savings could be as high as $450 annually on residential sewer bills.

Different proposals have been brought up in the past but were not successful. Santa Paula residents pay the second highest rates in the State of California at the present time. The price to purchase the waste water treatment plant will be $70.8 million when finalized.

Oxnard Largest City in Ventura County


The growing city of Oxnard is the largest and populous city in Ventura County, sitting on the coast about 35 miles west of Los Angeles and is considered a part of the greater Los Angeles area. Oxnard has a dynamic and diverse economy that is driven by manufacturing, defense, agriculture, tourism and the U.S. Navy. It is one of the cities that occupy what is known as the Oxnard Plain, one of the most fertile areas in the world. Strawberries and beans are two of it’s most famous crops. The town  supplies about one third of the State’s annual strawberry volume. It also  has over 20 miles of scenic and uncrowded beaches sitting on its coastline.

The Channel Islands Harbor is located on the south shore of the town , and is nicknamed: “Gateway to the Channel Islands” because of the high number of vessels that sail to the islands out of the harbor.

Oxnard has numerous companies and large corporations that employ thousands and thousands of Southern Californians. Hass Automation, Seminis, Raypak, Drum Workshop, Borla Performance, Boss Audio and Robbins Auto Tops, Procter and Gamble and Sysco are just a few of the biggest operations.

6 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR REALTOR

It seems like it is getting harder and harder to find a qualified and professional real estate person to help a buyer or seller get through the complicated process.
A good real estate agent can be of much help to buyers and sellers and can bring valuable experience, local knowledge, and can bring negotiating skills to the table, all of which can save you much time and trouble, money and wasted effort. No two agents act alike so you must vet a real estate agent on their skills, experience and if you think you can have a good rapport during the negotiations and before signing any contract or agreements.

HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS THAT SHOULD HELP YOU DECIDE WHETHER YOU HAVE FOUND THE AGENT THAT IS BEST FOR YOU:

*Does the agent work full time or just part time in real estate?
*What kind of real estate license do they have?
*Is the license in good standing?
*How long have you been in the real estate business?
*How many buyers and sellers do you currently represent?
*What kind of technology will you use to help me buy/sell my home?

Many buyers and sellers choose to not use an agent, but most people use a real estate agent to help guide them through the process. Choosing a real estate professional is an important step in the home buying/selling process. It pays to ask questions to ensure that you find the most qualified agent and one with whom you’ll be able to work well.

The Small Towns and Communities in Ventura County

Ventura County is made up of many prosperous small towns and communities.

What started out as mainly agricultural land and products has grown into a giant on the California economic scale. Ventura is an exciting place and is as diverse as the people who live here. It has it all; inland green valley’s, rolling hills, mountains, seashore, islands off the coast, large and small cities, hillside estate homes, beachfront homes, harbors, rivers, canyons, 100 year old oak trees that line the old country dirt roads that meander along flowing rivers and along the many orange, lemon and avocado groves throughout the county.

Ventura County is one of the most affluent population centers in the U.S. The county is ranked as one of the top 100 highest income counties in the country, and as the sixth wealthiest county in California by per capita income.

Ventura County is a major player in the Tech Coast Area and has a large presence in technology corporations involved with healthcare, telecommunications, development and biotech corporations, most of which are located in the Conejo Valley.
The City of Ventura itself offers a diverse selection of lifestyles and residential options. The city has gone through a renovation and modernization phase the last few years and now offers some great real estate deals, both in residential and commercial.

MIDTOWN
offers a bungalow style community that was developed back in the 1920s. Most of the homes are small with a Cape Cod design or Spanish style. Some of the homes in this district have wood floors and much character. The real estate property in this downtown area is highly sought over mainly due to its location close to the beaches and to the Harbor.
Newest Homes:

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.

HILLSIDE 
The neighborhoods here enjoy beautiful Ocean and Mountain views. Most of the homes on the hillsides are large Spanish style homes and some have as many as 5 bedrooms.
Newest Homes:

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.

VENTURA BEACH
The beach homes are located in the Ventura Keys, Ventura Marina and Pierpoint. In the beach areas you can find small bungalows all the way up to huge beachfront homes and some have up to 90 feet of beach frontage.

Newest Homes:

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.

VENTURA EAST END
The East End homes, in most cases, are newer than the midtown housing, or the Hillside homes. Some of the East End tracts include the Presidents Tract, Fairfield, Concord, Citrus Hills, Stonehedge Park, Woodside Cottages and Woodside Greens.

Ventura County has some of the cleanest and safest beaches in all of California, yet most of the beaches are not occupied or busy during most of the year. This is big surfing country and early in the mornings the beaches are busy with surfers coming in from all over to enjoy the blue Pacific. At many of the Ventura County beaches, there are public campgrounds and picnic areas also.
