A week ago Wednesday, it poured, and Vista Urbana’s site was a giant mud pit. The groundbreaking ceremony that was supposed to have kicked off the new community’s marketing campaign had to be rescheduled for the following week.

But last Wednesday, it was hot and sunny. The ground was dry, spirits were high, and our client Aldersgate Investments celebrated the kick-off of construction of their new 156-unit property. We were there to help cheer them on, along with Mayor Tom Holden and an assortment of City officials, lenders from Bank of America, and other supporters. We wish Ernie, Matt and Ruth Mansi every success with Vista Urbana — and the working families of Oxnard access to a wonderful new place to live!
