Santa Paula

Situated just east of  Ventura, Santa Paula is a rapidly growing community, with developments springing up amongst the Orange Grove and farmlands. This community was once known as the Citrus Capital.

The local economy is mostly agriculturally based with Lemon, Orange and advocado groves.  In fact Santa Paula is the headquarters for Calavo Growers, Inc.  The local Mediterranean climate with an estimated 20 feet (6.1 m) of topsoil have made it one of the best locations for growing citrus. And for relocating homeowners seeking a mild climate to call home.

Without the hustle of most Southern California towns Santa Paula gets little traffic congestion and is a slice of tranquility.  This is not to say that there is nothing to do as recreational activities are similar to many hometowns with Soccer and Baseball, and museums.

The California Oil Museum,  within the historic Union Oil building is located downtown, and the Santa Paula Art Museum and Museum of Ventura County Agriculture Museum are just up the street. The Santa Paula Mural Project has completed numerous murals depicting the city’s history.

The town has served as backdrops for many motion pictures including Billy Bob Thornton in Mr Woodcock, Joe Dirt, Georgia Rule, the remake of Leave it Beaver,  Carrie. Parts of  The Philadelphia Experiment and Amityville 4.

Just look at the variety of colors!

It comes in a variety of colors and can be pruned to simulate a small tree, a scrub or even ground cover.

Remember it likes the stress of drought, so do not water often, as you will stop  the flowers from blooming.

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.
