Calif. hyper-sensitivity to this and other issues (outlawing dog breeding) really just transfers the undesireable (risk) in the nuke case, out of state...it does nothing to improve the situation. It is kind of a Kathy Lee Gifford sweat shop approach to being "green" and "conscious." Outsource the undesireable.

Just say NO to Caruso!!! We like our overgrown lots to stay the same here in Santa Barbara! We may be west coasters, but we are anything but progressive and visionary! Just keep everything the same always!!!! NO exceptions!!!!

Hope she isn´t decapitated or has a grenade lobbed at her by the drug gangs.....or has her body strung from an overpass in nearby Cuernavaca....

What about moving shelter to Montecito, next to the house of Harold Simmons, or Lady Ridley-Tree...since they are such supporters of enabling addiction?!

If my memory serves me correctly, the blue roofs were not "tiles", but composition shingles. (just suggesting maybe the LA press release be weighed with reality before the indie presses fire up)

Great that there are people who recognize that the space relation that has been created on Chapala is not a function of height limits..that it has more to do with the blank wall created by inward oriented Paseo Nuevo....which is more destructive to the streetscape of Chapala than are the recent projects everyone seems so disturbed by. There are many other examples of 1980Â's and 1990Â's interventions that are below 40 feet, comply with the "el pueble viejo" spanish look, but have parking garages occupying the entire street level thus killing the pedestrian relation and human scale of the project. Changing the height limit is not the solution to diminished SB streetscapes.

I agree with the arquitect. We must decide, not just in SB, but all over the US, between density or sprawl. It is one or the other. Santa Barbara, as usual, is probably against both options...for being an "enlightened" west coast hamlet, I am always surprised by the dialogue generated here. It can be so purile and populist....and so offtrack. Thank you Brian, for your insight.
