General Plan Amendment Application (GPA 2017-2)
The City Council, at their meeting of September 27, 2017, referred a General Plan Amendment request for futher study from NUWI Camarillo, LLC, to amend the General Plan Land Use Element on 30 acres from the current Quasi-Public land use designation to Low-Medium Density Residential (10 dwelling units per acre maximum) with the remaining 152 acres of the Camarillo Springs golf course property to remain as Quasi-Public for golf course use. The proposal would provide for up to 300 age restricted (55+ only) residential units.
The City Council, at their meeting of May 13, 2020 voted unanimously to place an item on the June 10, 2020 City Council agenda to consider the rescission of the General Plan Amendment referral.
On June 3, 2020 the City Council held a Special Meeting to consider whether to direct the Interim City Manager not to include on the June 10, 2020 City Council Meeting Agenda consideration of rescission of General Plan Amendment Referral, as requested by the City Council at their meeting on May 13, 2020. Consideration was given and based on discussion that the golf course had reopened, the City Council voted 3-2 (Craven and Santangelo dissenting) to direct the Interim City Manager not to include on the June 10, 2020 City Council Meeting Agenda consideration of rescission of General Plan Amendment Referral.
At the triennial review of the General Plan Amendment Referral held on September 23, 2020, the City Council voted 3-2 (Kildee and Craven dissenting) to allow General Plan Amendment 2017-2 to remain in place and to continue to process the General Plan Amendment.
GPA 2017-2 Application
Change of Zone Application (CZ-327)
A change of zone application has been submitted to change the zoning from Rural Exclusive (RE) and Rural Exclusive, 1 acre minimum lot size (RE-1Ac) to Residential Planned Development, 10 units per acre maximum (RPD-10U). CZ-327 will be processed concurrently with the CEQA review and applications for a General Plan Amendment, tentative tract map, and residential planned development.
Tentative Tract Map Application (TT-6016)
A tentative tract map has been submitted and is in review by the City and will be processed concurrently with the CEQA review, applications for a General Plan Amendment, change of zone, and residential planned development. Plans for TT-6016 may be viewed by clicking the following link.
The applicant is currently working on preparing the application and plans to submit a Residential Planned Development application. The plans will provide detail on the proposed product type, number of units, stories, unit size, and architecture.
The City will enter into and manage the contracts with Cadence Environmental Consultants and The Natelson Dale Group for preparation of a CEQA document and economic study. The applicant is required to pay for the total direct cost of the consultant contracts plus 15% for the City’s administrative costs for managing the contracts.
A scoping meeting is anticipated to be scheduled in June-July 2019 to provide an opportunity for the public and interested parties to comment on the scope and content of the environmental document that will be prepared for the proposed project.
The City is aware that a Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR) application affecting property within the City was prepared and submitted. The NUWI CLOMR application material was reviewed by City staff to verify it met the general requirements for submittal to FEMA, but no technical review or authorization of the submitted material was performed by the City because the submittal is very general in nature and a significant amount of additional details will be required as the project progresses through design and review by FEMA.
The City is aware that NUWI has submitted baseline floodplain hydrology and hydraulic modeling and analysis to the Ventura County Watershed Protection District (VCWPD) for review in preparation for the CLOMR application to FEMA. Further detailed hydrology and hydraulic calculations and modeling will be required as part of the review of the specific design of the project, and prior to any associated approvals by VCWPD, FEMA and the City.
Any possible removal of properties from a floodplain can happen only if FEMA revises the flood maps with a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), which can only happen when FEMA gives final verification and approval that the grading and improvements identified in the CLOMR, previously approved by FEMA, have been completed with verification by the City.
While FEMA and VCWPD have performed technical feasibility reviews to date, their involvement in the final determination of the project’s proposed revision to the flood hazard areas is not completed.
- VCWPD has commented to the developer that they would need to review any additional information that becomes available as the project progresses through design review and permitting. VCWPD will need to permit any of the development that affects their jurisdiction such as Conejo Creek.
- The project is close to receiving a CLOMR from FEMA. An outstanding FEMA requirement before for issuance of the CLOMR is for the City (in its role as floodplain administrator) to publish a public notice of the development’s intent to modify the floodway/floodzone map. The City will not publish this public notice until after the project has received full entitlement approval by City Council including conditions of approval specific to stormwater hydrology, hydraulics, and drainage.
- City requirements related to stormwater hydrology, hydraulics, drainage and flooding must be met through the entitlement, design review and construction processes before a final determination can be made by FEMA to issue a final Letter of Map Revision which effectuates any modifications to the flood zone.
A significant requirement of the project is to provide an unobstructed emergency drainage overflow facility to allow any water accumulated within the project or existing Camarillo Springs developments to flow downstream without causing any impacts to any structures. The design and construction details for an emergency overflow have not been submitted by the developer and will require review and approval by the City along with the rest of the project improvements before the project receives final approval for construction.
- NUWI has prepared a CLOMR application for submittal to FEMA and the City has signed the Community Acknowledgement letter for NUWI to include in the application.
- The project will require City review and council approval of CEQA, General Plan Amendment, Change of Zone and entitlements with conditions of approval.
- The conditions of approval will require an approved CLOMR from FEMA along with the typical package of required items to be reviewed and approved by the City including but not limited to hydrology/hydraulic study, site grading, drainage and improvement plans (streets, water, sewer, etc.), final map, and soils investigation report.
- The hydrology/hydraulic study and grading/improvement plans will have to comply with the requirements of the CLOMR approved by FEMA and all conditions of approval before the City will approve and permit the project for grading/construction of improvements but not structures.
- When the developer completes the construction of the grading, drainage and other required improvements in conformance with the CLOMR and the approved plans, they can submit an application to FEMA for review and approval of the final LOMR to remove the affected properties from the floodplain based on the completed grading and other required improvements.
- FEMA determines if a LOMR is to be issued and if it is, the flood map is changed by FEMA reflecting the removal of the affected properties from the floodplain.
- The City can then issue building permits for structures located on the affected properties once the LOMR is approved by FEMA.

IPD-53M(11), 3233 MISSION OAKS BOULEVARD - INDUSTRIAL PROJECT, REXFORD INDUSTRIAL
The proposed project under IPD-53M(11) involves demolition of the existing 52,500 square foot (sf) office building on the southern portion of the project site (adjacent to Mission Oaks Boulevard), construction of a new 120,500 sf multi-tenant industrial building (Building A), and the addition of 55,810 sf (Building B) to an existing industrial building. An existing 373,951 sf of industrial space and 33,672 sf of office space would remain. The final building footprint would cover 583,933 sf of the 1,389,128 sf (31.9-acre) lot. The project would reduce landscaped area from 246,697 sf to 140,282 sf and increase parking spaces from 616 to 823 stalls.
