(Editor’s Note: This story has been updated to clarify the plans apply to Ventura County Harbor Department, which manages Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard – and not to be confused with Ventura Harbor Department in the city of Ventura.)
Plans to house the Ventura County Harbor Department in temporary trailers during reconstruction of its main office were approved during the California Coastal Commission’s June 7 meeting.
Two trailers with office space inside and a portable restroom would be built to accommodate county’s Harbor Department staff as the Harbor Administrative Building is renovated.
“Harbor administrative staff had originally planned to temporarily relocate to existing office space available elsewhere within the Harbor during reconstruction of their administrative building. However, the county has indicated that there is no suitable existing office space within the Harbor at this time for temporary staff use during construction, which is anticipated to commence shortly,” Coastal Commission staff stated in a report to commissioners.
One trailer would be 2,880 square feet in size, with the second occupying 384 square feet, according to Coastal Commission staff. The portable restroom would take up 128 square feet.
The three trailers would be located on a parking lot near Murre Way.
“A total of 11 public parking spaces will be temporarily occupied by the proposed development,” according to Coastal Commission staff.
Ventura County Harbor Department is headquartered at Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard.
