Pick a Place to Live

Living in Oxnard is popular for both new hires and experienced employees alike as there are many housing options that offer a short commute time while still having lots to do. The city of around 200,000 borders the Pacific Ocean on the west and the 101 Freeway to the east. Beaches and marinas dot the coastline and with the water nearby, the ocean breeze keeps the communities it contains cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than those further inland.

Located around 9 miles from the plant and 15 minutes commuting time, Ventura is popular with many new hires with its vibrant restaurant scene and prevalent nightlife. Ventura, officially known as the City of San Buenaventura, is home to around 100,000 people and is located just to the north of Oxnard.
