Oxnard Mayor, John C. Zaragoza will present his first annual State of the City address at a virtual event hosted by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 1 p.m.

“While we have endured many challenges over the past year, I am excited for the future of Oxnard,” said Mayor Zaragoza. “Thanks to the voters’ approval of Measure E, we will have our first positive budget in more than a decade. We are beginning our first year of restoring many services that our community needs and deserves. Together with my City Council colleagues, we established our 5-year priorities, which provide a roadmap for continued progress.”

The State of the City address will reflect on the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and also highlight how City staff supported the Oxnard community during times of need. The Mayor will also discuss Measure E, the City Council 5-Year Priorities, the new Amazon facility, updates regarding the Sakioka Business Park, and other business news.

“The State of the City report is particularly important this year because all the changes Oxnard has been through in the last 12 months. We have a new mayor, we have survived the worst pandemic of our lifetime, our residents and businesses have greater needs than ever before, and – thankfully – we have new revenue to fund all those needs,” said Nancy Lindholm, President and CEO of the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce.
