Toxic I.V. June Move-Out


One of the many factors the California Coastal Commission should have considered when the commissioners voted for the UCSB Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) was the Isla Vista June move-out. Isla Vista move-outs occur more than once a year, but in June, after graduation, June move-out turns this less-than-one-square-mile island into a total garbage dump that is beyond belief!

By foolishly adding another 5,000 students and their families and friends, it will only increase the incredibly toxic carbon footprint already threatening this most crowded community in the western United States. Any item one may mention is poured onto the streets and an overflowing amount of waste of every kind is thrown out anywhere.

An appeal to the California Coastal Commission is free, and we and others are going to appeal the entire UCSB LRDP including the Isla Vista June move out which was not even considered.
