The following is a brief overview of the request:
Ventura County, Department of Airports, Camarillo, California requested a release from the conditions contained in the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Assurance obligations for approximately .99 acres of airport land near Oxnard Airport. The property is located northwest of Oxnard Airport, adjacent to North Victoria Avenue and between Doris Avenue and Gonzales Road. The property is presently farm land in an agricultural area. The land will continue to be used for farming. Ventura County requested approval to sell the small parcel because the land is not needed for airport purposes and its current agricultural status prevents other uses. The property is approximately one mile from the airport boundary and is not suitable for current or future airport development. The sale price will be based on its appraised market value and the sale proceeds will be used for airport purposes. The continued use of the property for farming represents a compatible use that will not interfere with airport operations. The airport will be properly compensated, thereby serving the interests of civil aviation.
