There is no fracking California or Santa Barbara?
"Fracking has been documented in 10 California counties — Colusa, Glenn, Kern, Los Angeles, Monterey, Sacramento, Santa Barbara, Sutter, Kings and Ventura. Oil companies have also fracked offshore wells hundreds of times in the ocean near California’s coast, from Seal Beach to the Santa Barbara Channel.
In Kern County, California’s major oil-producing county, 50 percent to 60 percent of new oil wells are fracked, according to estimates by Halliburton. And fracking may have been done elsewhere in California, since state officials haven’t monitored or tracked the practice until recently.
According to this government website: http://www.conservation.ca.gov/dog/ge... fracking has been used in CA for 30 years...

I don't care if there is or isn't currently any fracking (which by the way we don't know because reporting regulations are so lax). I want it banned here.

Kidding is right on this one - what little chance the county had to have any influence what the tribe wants to do got thrown out the window when they rejected the g-to-g agreement.

Safety is obviously important, but I also think the city needs to address our obtuse and confounding permitting system. I know this because I have been through it - "the parking lot you purchased isn't large enough for the building that it came with....You can't expand your parking lot without taking down those trees...you can't take those trees down without approval...you can't have a new parking lot without adding an ADA compliant garbage enclosure...adding that ADA compliant garbage enclosure will reduce the amount of parking you have and now you don't have enough parking for the lot that came with your building...that garbage enclosure direction won't work...sorry, permit to operate your business denied and here's your fine...
Maybe if the system were easier to navigate so many property owners wouldn't try to get around it...
Oh yeah and realitycheck - this is one of those "SB lefty dems" speaking that you seem to know so much about...
