Santa Maria City Council to Hear Appeals of ICE Facility Approval


The Santa Maria City Council on Thursday will hear the three appeals filed in response to the Planning Commission’s approval of a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in town. The Planning Commission meeting saw thousands voice their opposition; the appeals — filed by homeowners, the League of United Latin American Citizens, and Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement — allege the building will negatively affect the area’s health, safety, and property values, and be an eyesore. The hearing starts at 3 p.m. at the Santa Maria Fairpark.
