Welcome from the Mayor of Port Hueneme
On behalf of the Port Hueneme City Council, City staff and the residents of our community, it is my honor and privilege to welcome you to the City of Port Hueneme.
I am pleased you have chosen to visit our website to assist in your discovery of all we have to offer here at the City of Port Hueneme. Our city is a dynamic, friendly community ideally located half way between Malibu and Santa Barbara along California’s scenic Ventura County coastline. Port Hueneme is the closest mainland point to the offshore Channel Islands National Park. We play host to the Port of Hueneme, the only deep-water commercial seaport between Los Angeles and San Francisco and Naval Base Ventura County, an important research, test and evaluation center for our nation’s air, land and sea defense. Port Hueneme has exceptional parks, great schools, and numerous services. We strive to be a family-oriented place that everybody can call home.
With a sense of purpose, striving for progress and community engagement, I welcome you to our City of Port Hueneme. We look forward to the opportunity to serve your needs.
Mayor of the City of Port Hueneme
As illustrated in the graphic Port Hueneme is actually comprised of three separate entities:
- Naval Base Ventura County, commonly referred to as the “Seabee Base,”
- The deep-water commercial “Port of Hueneme”
- The predominately residential community of “Hueneme” that makes up the balance of the City.
The community is flanked by the City of Oxnard, Channel Islands (small craft) Harbor, Ormond Beach Wetlands and the Pacific Ocean.
