Fox playing coy with plans for the fall

He absolutely intended to seek a seventh term.

“You want to make sure that when you leave, that there’s people that are coming behind you, that’s part of good leadership,” Fox said at the time. “We’re getting there; I’m just not sure we’re there yet.”

Fox, an assistant chief with the Los Angeles Fire Department, has until Aug. 10 to decide.

May 6 was the first day council candidates were allowed to start soliciting campaign donations, but the city doesn’t begin accepting nomination papers until July 16. The nomination period closes Aug. 10.

The terms of Councilmembers Claudia Bill-de la Peña and Joel Price will also be ending, and they have already announced their intent to seek reelection. Bill-de la Peña, who is running for a fifth term, became the first incumbent to file official paperwork on June 8.

“There’s so much going on,” she said of the plans for downtown, the addition of units to the Measure E count and housing development. “I know I want to see it carried out in a fashion that isn’t going to change the wonderful character of our city.

City completes purchase of open space

Three weeks ago the City Council voted unanimously to purchase the first 125 acres of open space with a $1.5-million Ventura County grant earmarked for land preservation in Moorpark.

And last week, the council unanimously approved a 129-acre purchase from Waste Management of California Inc. at $12,000 per acre.

WM donated an additional acre to the city.

The second transaction, close to the $1.5-million cost of the first, is expected to be funded by the environmental mitigation fees—costs paid to the city by housing developers—from The Masters neighborhood, a project by Pennsylvania-based Toll Brothers. Those fees, totaling about $3.7 million, can be used only to purchase and maintain open spaces.

Council members also approved spending an additional $70,000 for escrow, legal and civil engineering fees related to the purchase, bringing the total to about $1.6 million.

Maintenance and brush clearance of the open space is expected to cost the city $11,000 annually.

acorn housing?

Has anybody heard of them? Used them? Or know somebody who has? We're fist time home owners, and need a little help-they seem legit and have alot to offer..anybody have an opinion on these kinds of programs?

I've met with them before, they are legit. They help with first time home buyers with mortgages and finding low income homes. They didn't ask for a fee, but there is a charge to become a member, but I don't know if its required.
