I wouldn't think speculators would be holding property vacant in SB. That would be like giving away money.

Actually Loon. They search people going into stadiums and theme parks in the name of security, but really what they want is for people not to bring their own food and drink. They insist that people buy overpriced food and beverages at their concession stands.

I'm not sure who would be fool enough to buy it. As soon as the deal is consumated, Cottage would squash them like a bug.

That's a really tired argument. And firefighters are one group that can actually afford to live here.

There are precious few single family homes in SB and Goleta for less than $700K, and most of those have issues. The cheapest one is in old town Goleta for $550K. At this point, just expanding freeway access is the easiest and most practical option.

It's a situation that partly feeds on itself. The trades have to pay more for labor and thus they charge more. Building costs here are very high, partially because of government, partially because of labor and partially because of the cost of land. Trying to build our way out of it with a very finite amount of land will just create a mess here. I don't envy the residents of Goleta when the building boom they are experiencing comes home to roost. Storke and Hollister will likely be the ugliest intersection in the county.

Thank God. This has gone on long enough, partially due to Caruso himself. I look forwarded to seeing it in 2018.
