Uh, don't you mean east of Patterson Avenue?

They base their prices on the assumption that the local population can't be bothered to drive a couple of miles to Fairview Avenue. Also, they hook the parents of UCSB students who don't know any better.

Venoco is not going to go away quietly no matter how much the City wishes this will happen. The first challenge will be to the adequacy of the City's own CEQA document (or lack thereof) on the ordinance where they flatly admitted that they have no idea how many properties the ordinance could affect or what the extent of any impacts would be. Also, since Venoco has a vested right to operate the facility, the actualy amortization period will have to be long enough (most likely longer than five years) to realize their investment in the facility; or, the City gets to pay Venoco. If the City wanted to "control their own destiny" regarding this property, then it should have been exluded from the City boundaries when the City was formed, and given up the tax revenues the City gains from it. If the City is successful in shutting down the facility, there will be monetary consequences.

The alternative to spending more money (and paying for it through rate increases) to increase water supplies is to decrease demand; however, this usually involves more draconian measures that also fall on the property owner such as prohibiting lawns and requiring installation of water-conserving fixtures. Which do you want?

The "city tree guy" had nothing to do with this tree that was located on County property that is maintained by the County Park Department.

"Drafted by Assemblymember Das Williams, AB 3 would create a governing mechanism with the taxing powers to address infrastructure needs such as street lights, garbage, law enforcement, firefighting, and roads." How can we miss Das if he won't go away? This will be another property tax on top of the tax the property owners already pay to IV Recreation and Parks District. Another dis-incentive to improving property in IV.
