A whale tale sculpture fountain at the entrance to the harbor? Sounds like self promotion. Oh well, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

The questions are, in view of current and future budget considerations is it wise to assume the initial and future costs and liabilities of something that is already being paid for by the state, and is this the highest traffic priority for Santa Barbara? Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free. It is financially irresponsible for our leaders to pander to the vocal and apparently politically powerful Mesa group, without providing a clear accounting of all projected expenses down the road, where the funds are coming from and what projects will be sacrificed to do this. The Mesa group has big plans already drafted for Cliff Drive once responsibility has been transferred. The city can barely take care of maintaing the streets downtown and they want to take over a highway? It is a want, not a need.

Does anyone see the biased reporting? "Based on the verdict, the Housing Authority had better experts..." Maybe the verdicts were based on the facts and that none of the plaintiffs suffered any harm. I get it that Nick doesn't treat landlords with kid gloves, but this the same guy didn't give the last non blessed council runners any space in the Indy in the last election. 1. 2 million? Looks like maybe Budkes working for a HA project as a specialist thought she could retire from some deep pockets. She defiantly had an knowledge of how the system works and I guess $50,000 just wasn't enough of that cash pie. She should have taken the money and ran. It would have been a good down payment on a condo. Not all mold is created equal, especially on the Mesa where the dampness, post war construction and often limited ventilation is common as is surface the mold that is easily wiped away with a rag and some bleach. We all grew up with it. Are we talking about major flooding, long standing water leaks and rot that was not addressed when noticed, and positive allergy testing, or long running respiratory issues that seem to be increasing overall? In case anyone hasn't noticed, the suits filed for mold cases has gone down proportionally since insurance companies stopped including mold it their policies without a rider (which is often available for renters). It's kind of like peanuts. Now you can sue Pad Thai.

So much negativity without suggested solutions. It sounds like a braying herd of Eeyores I think the ping pong table is a great low impact idea that should be given a chance to succeed. The city afford their can't own plan for high cost makeovers that do nothing to alter the usability of the space and only creates deterrents. Someone is willing to spend their own money and time to do something that could benefit the community by attracting the public, and maybe inspire others to get involved People need to get out of SB occasionally and see how similar ideas work in other places. If it doest work, so what It is only ping pong, not bulb outs.
