As a water district their role is to deliver water within their service area. The very valid questions regarding over-development/over-population are issues that the Goleta City Council should be addressing but seem to be unconcerned with given their recent actions.

Ha ha, JA, good one about Aceves election victory!

As the article mentioned, the RNA was voted on and approved when cityhood was approved, so if Bennett and company want to go against the will of the people, then they need to put something on the table to shift some of the existing service burdens from the County to the City, like annexing Isla Vista, Goleta Beach, and numerous other residential areas that were purposely excluded since the fees and tax revenues generated by those area are less than the cost of providing services.

I too spent many a blissful summer in IV enjoying the peace and quiet. The only bummer was that many of the restaurants like Serranitos closed for their well-desearved vacations as well! Who remembers the massive squid die-off on the beach?

Is the "pulsating radiation" emitted from smart meters any different from the cell phone you hold next to your head, or your wi-fi connection, or many of your electric appliances in your house?

Whine, whine, whine.

Flagrant rights violation? What right, to trash the environment? The Coastal Commission has a duty to balance coastal access with the protection of sensitive coastal resources. The temporary inconvenience is far outweighed by the potential for long-term damage to the fragile coastal ecosystem. If the partygoers had been more responsible to begin with, the County wouldn't have to close the beach in the short-term in order to protect it for the long-term.

This is one of the hardest things one has to do as a pet "owner." Jasper will tell you when it is time, and it's your responsibility to not prolong his life just for your own benefit. There comes a time when their quality of life just isn't there anymore, and they are in constant pain.

Lanny keeps spouting that “The bottom line is public employees have higher pay, better benefits, more days off, greater job security, and especially higher pensions than the private sector,” however, he never backs up that claim with any hard evidence. Hmmm...

According to the artilce if the Board of Supervisors opts to not accept the Coastal Commision modifications then the County "would default the county back to an 'uncertified' land-use code reality (something that it has basically been living with for two decades now), creating the potential for any and all projects in the coastal zone to be appealed to the Coastal Commission."

The actual situation is that the County would retain the existing Article II Coastal Zoning Ordinance that was certified by the Coastal Commission in 1982. Whether this creates the potential for any project in the Coastal Zone to be appealed to the Coastal Commission is debateable; the Coastal Commission has never asserted this position in the over 28 years that the County has been implementing the Article II ordinance.
