Don't like the courts? Get an Act of Congress! Can't get local political support? $5,000 will get you a bill sponsored by a clown in the desert!
On Chumash Call on Congress for Camp 4
Posted on August 26 at 9:38 a.m.
This is a land use issue, period. Read the Chumash application. It calls for building 134 3,000 to 5,000 sq ft houses, 1-5 ac next to a state scenic highway, on a lot zoned for 100 acres. One of the plans includes a 30 acre spot for "government" buildings. If the current government buildings, and residences are consolidated on Camp 4 site, the Chumash would have much more acreage on the casino property to build out the casino. The people of Santa Barbara signed off on a 20 year plan which includes keeping this land agricultural, and the supes need to back the citizens of their county.
Cohen's promises are completely unenforceable by the county. They can build whatever they want on reservation land. If Camp 4 is approved by the BIA, all the tribal buildings and residences will be moved to Camp 4, and the size of the casino will be doubled. Count on it.
