The City of Oxnard, California occupies a stretch of land bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean and on the north, south, and east by coastal range mountains. Sixty miles north of Los Angeles, Oxnard is the largest (pop = 112,000 as of 1981) in the cluster of four major cities in Ventura County, comprised of Ventura (the second largest), Camarillo and Pt. Huenemie. Until the late sixties and early seventies much of the city proper consisted of agricultural fields. The influx of "high-tech" firms near Oxnard and the increased need for suburban homes for the Los Angeles area has in part caused the transformation of many agricultural areas into housing tracts. This process is by no means complete; even a cursory visit to Oxnard will impress upon the observor the great amount of construction in the area.
