You were speeding and got a ticket...why does it matter how or where they set up?

Aside from that, they have been setting up in that area for at least 20+ years. I've seen as many as 6 patrol cars/motorcycles working at once. This is why many of the drivers who regularly pass through the area slow down when they hit Dos Pueblos.

Each property would need to obtain a water rights permit to divert and store runoff (not because the water is harmful).

On Pitiable Trickles

Tyler, you corrected the sentence, but does the paragraph still make sense? Do people really feel that the power company knowing how much energy is being used is an invasion of privacy, or do the people actually think the smart meters know what appliances are being used? Two very different things; please clarify.

Don, you act as if you never take advantage of these socialized public assets. Even your beloved public bus must use streets paid for by tax dollars.

Why show a photo of Dengue Fever? They are no longer playing at the Fest.

Interesting Ken. Likely due to lower oxygen levels, the poor little buggers couldn't breathe.

Maybe the stores hostile sales person rubbed someone the wrong way. I agree that the store has great selection, but I always feel nervous going in there (in a soup-nazi kind of way).

It’s funny you mention “being fair to property owners.” After all, who owns the sliver of property behind this whole Prop Y? It’s the city of Santa Barbara and, by decree, its citizens have the right to vote on the giveaway of this property to benefit developer Mark Lee. Mark Lee has the right to develop his property, we have the right to cast a No vote and not give away city park land.

Don, I think you are confused in stating that opponents to Prop Y are in “opposition to new or improved public, walking and biking paths.” From the posts that I’ve read, most of us are opposed to (1) the green-washing of this project by Mark Lee, (2) the development itself, (3) the exaggerated claims of benefits to safety and creek habitat, or (4) giving away city park land for a developers benefit.
Already voted No on Y

Excellent point Ken. The Yes on Y proponents make it sound like Westsiders are going to come streaming out of the hills once this wonderful bridge is built. There are already "safe" options from the Westside via Flora Vista to Douglas Preserve, but I don't see many people making the trek.
Let's not kid ourselves anymore. In the end, the project is about the profit Mark Lee will make in pushing his development project forward, not about providing safe access to the beach or restoring creeks.
