OK - Let's drill for more oil, but let us not do what we did in the 70s (the last energy crisis) - and think that the problem is solved. Oil is a limited resource and sooner or later we are going to have to figure out how to get along without oil. Mother nature provides us abundant sun and water - that can be harnessed for clean energy.

Someone in the city or county needs to meet with Erika and get some instruction on how to modernize the information delivery system!

Please point out to me a place on the California coast that is not subject to fire, floods and earthquakes. Please point out to me a place on the Florida coast that is not subject to floods and hurricanes.
Mother Nature's reality is that no place is safe. It is simply a matter of mitigating (to the extent possible), the hazards of any area.
Santa Barbara, Naples and Gaviota are no different.
I am sure that people who moved to SB in the 1950 were upset about the newbees that arrived in the 1960s. That the 1960 crowd was upset about the 1970's crowd ...
Grow up. The population of the US is growing, and new housing is being built everywhere. McManions (as they are called on the east coast) are a reality. However in Naples and Goviota - there will be no McManions. McManions are large houses on a tiny slip of land. The proposed developments have LARGE lot sizes. So why are you upset?
Growth is inevitable, especially when SB will not allow new housing or real change to any existing house. New housing is inevitable, because people of means want modern housing and they have as much right to live in the area as anyone. This is a free country.
Let's force the developers to take responsibility for the proper infrastructure, but we also need to accept that SB cannot hide in the 1960s. CA is suppose to be a place of innovation, new ideas and tolerance - do we meet that test?
