Pretty soon all of SB's housing will be listed on these sites, and it will become a town of just vacation rentals. ;-)
You can continue to watch the number of listings rise on Airbnb here:
On Vacation Rental Trend <br /> Takes Root in Santa Barbara

It would be nice if you could write an article on the impact the increase in vacation rentals has on housing prices for those of us who live here year-round. Housing rarely gets built in SB, and if more and more of our small supply gets rented out to tourists on websites like these, it will continue to have an impact on prices by reducing the supply.

Do we really have enough people in the town to drive enough business to/through something like this? I think it is pretty neat, but not sure if it is a right fit for SB. I guess we'll find out. If it fails, they can probably convert the level into more apartments.
And, I hope that Santa Monica Seafood is also sourcing local items. It drives me nuts that local seafood is hard to come by (mainly with the restaurants), with a town that is right next to the sea.

Is there any way to just keep the roundabout super simple to keep the costs down? Sometimes Santa Barbara goes way overboard on the design with construction projects, and that's why they become so expensive. -- Remember the corn husk light fixtures with the Milpas roundabout? ;-)

What about the rights to the hot water that flows out of the springs? Were these included in the deal? It would be incredibly wonderful if these were opened to the public as they are now controlled by the Montecito Creek Water Company, and the water is piped down to the mansions below.

In addition to this, I think the city should limit the amount of places that are bought and then rented out to tourists on sites like VRBO and Airbnb. So many places these days are being bought and used as vacation rentals.

Does anyone else feel that The Independent was a bit slow to catch on to the story of this year's Floatopia? The event with 10,000+ people (that # doesn't include the friends they will bring) has been around for months on Facebook.

Santa Barbara Newspress reported that the landlord decided to change the contract at the last minute by drastically increasing the monthly rent they had originally agreed upon. If this is accurate, I wonder if the Melting Pot will take legal action against the landlord. The article also reported that the new Melting Pot operators had spent $50,000 getting ready for the reopening.

Send them to Japan. People there love small dogs and pay tons of money for them.
