I would really like a common sense approach to this problem. A study to see if it is feasible to sink an old decommissioned and cleaned up ship in this area. Its done all the time in other aras of the country. Thus creating a artical reef and a new fish habitat, area for scuba divers to explore and also help protect the Goleta Beach area. To me that would be a win - win solution.

If you think these 7 cell antenna's are bad wait till later this year when Southern California Edison installs a Smart Meter on the side of your house, everyone's house. Talk about you have no say in some corporation installing a "radiating emitting device" , guess what, you have no say. Each one of these smart meters has at least 2 transmitters, lots of Rf emmissions. Hey go online to Edisons web site, check out the smart meters. If the radio frequency emmissions don't scare you how about big brother able to monitor your daily life from your electrical use. Guess what will be next, you guessed it, wireless gas smart meters and then wireless water smart meters. Lots of RF for everyone.

I am glad Next G has decided to leave their bundles of cable on the telephone poles. That will give me a chance to go and photograph them and send them up to the CPUC. I am sure Next G is well aware of the inquiry regarding all the utility companies, electric, cable and telecomunnication companies, all which are "joint owner's of the telephone poles and also, I may add, share the liability. The inquiry regarding the Malibu fire and the San Diego fires a few years ago. It seeems the telephone poles were over loaded and some fell over and then at another sight, a loose cable (possibly TV cable) was wiped up into then high voltage wires and caused a fire. Go a head and leave those bundles and cables up there. Santa Barbara has had 4 major wild fires in past few years. I am sure the CPUC will love Next G's position on this matter.

GET INVOLVED!! Montecito Assocaition meeting next Tuesday @ 4 pm - 10/13/09. Next G cell antennas on agenda. Be THERE!Then of course the County Board of Supervisors meeting at 9 am - October 20th, special permit review and public comment discussion. BE THERE, this is important. If not write letters, send e-mails, call : complain, complain & complain to the Board of Supervisor's and Congress Woman Louis Capps. You stand to loose the two most important items in your life: FAMILY & HOME ( who would buy your house if there was a cell tower / antennas ouside your bedroom window, you have to legally disclose that, new buyer has two years to realise if you didn't disclose) what could be more important?The county needs to enact a moratium on their cell tower / antennas ordinace / policy. A full review needs to be done, update their policy regarding most recent legal cases, this needs to be done. WITH PUBLIC INPUT!!The Board of Supervisors are our elected officials : THERE FOR US BY US Tell Them NOW!!!

I would like to see the county research the option of hiring a company that could bring in a large ship to sink it off the coastal area, where it would provide protection for the the beach from erosion and would also create an artifical reef for both sport fishing and sport divers to enjoy. I belive this would be a win-win solution.

Every 7 to 8 years off of Coal Oil Point we have the eqivalent amount of natural oil leaking of a "Exxon Valdez" oil tanker. In case you forgot that was 10.8 million gallons of oil and it covered over 11,000 square miles. Until we tap into these natural seeps and remove this oil it will continue to happen. And this doesn't mention anything about the natural gas seeping which also contributes to the over all CO 2 levels. I really don't think it will matter that much how many cars travel up and down the freeway when you have something as huge as this happening every day right off our coast.

UCSB should simply install their own desalination water plant and also their own sewage treatment facility. That would make everyone happy and how easier could it be siting right next to the ocean.

I believe at the very least that any expansion at the university should include a desalination plant that would provide water for the complete campus. A transit system that doesn't rely on just vehicles but more so a busing system or something similar.

I don't know if Sandy & John Wallace have any solar panels on their property but if they did this project could be halted immediately. Can you imagine living within feet of a 35 - 40 foot building. I am totally against the project and the future potential of what it could bring to Coast Village Road, Chapala Street all over again. I also believe both the Monetcito Association and Montecito Planing Commission should be actively involved in the approval or disapproval of any new development on Coast Village Road.
