Not a whiff of a compliment to the wonderful community of IV from either the Indy or from all those dignitaries, for IV hosting this delightful and generous facility. Would Goleta host it? Would Montecito host it? Would the City of Santa Barbara host it in a residential area?
The article should have been entitled `The Wonderful Community of IV Steps Up and Hosts Humane Homeless Housing'. But that would have diverged from the official phony click-whoring narrative of the Indy about IV, that it is anarchy and a home to gang rape and murder.

IV is not an `anarchist bubble' whatsoever. Another sensationalist headline.
Surprised that the Indy, which has sunk to new lows, did not entitle this article: `Isla Vista Taliban Gang Rape and Mass Murder: is it the Child Molesters Pooping in the Ocean Again?'
to get clicks.

By all means you should be a leader and move on out, JarvisJarvis.

Yes, back in the 1960's when California's population was 15,000,000 (now it is about 2.5 times bigger, at 38,000,000), and the City of Santa Barbara had a population of 60,000, and Goleta CDP had about 10,000; SB now had 90,000 and Goleta now has 50,000. UCSB's growth isn't remarkable compared to other growth around here.

No, Georgy, everything in IV, from the subdivisions (1925-26), the zoning (1950's), approval of every single building permit, never building sidewalks or streetlights, and of course, the very invitation of UC to establish a campus in this area come from local residents, including the County Board of Supervisors.

``Goleta would have a 10-year surplus of $40.13 million if I.V. were to be included, and $7.05 million without it, according to a report presented to LAFCO by Santa Barbara County Administrators Office Representative Bill Schaitt,
““I.V. is a very small community with a great numbers of individuals, which means that state subventions would be high and the cost for road maintenance fairly low.”''
There you have it... Goleta would have made $30.08 million over 10 years if IV had been included.
Isla Vista is quite simply a money maker, always has been, always will. The only reason the County coughed up those numbers in 2001 was John Buttny twisted their arm.
Nick, you were so wrong in this article. Sabrina Rubin Erdely's piece in the Rolling Stone on UVA sexual assault deserves a Pulitzer for fact checking when compared with your fact checking here.

$30 million spent on IV? Hahahaha.
On LAFCO Gets Some Laughs and Looks at Isla Vista

The Hubbards must fantasize under the influence of psychedelics. I got through IV several times a day at move out time, and while not perfectly tidy, IV is by no means a total garbage dump.
In fact, the Isla Vista Sanitary District (I won't continue to refer to it as Goleta West, because originally it started in IV alone) does a great job of cleaning up, as do the IVRPD volunteers, and the GIVE program.
But don't expect the Indy to give Isla Vista a fair shake. The Indy has sunk to News-Press lows in its recent coverage of IV.
Humbug, Hubbards, you are clueless.
On Toxic I.V. June Move-Out

DJG... say hi to Pearl Chase for me... a magic closet in Rob Gym (same Robertson) will take you there... the loop is actually in Ocean Terrace, and I think they were drilling for oil back in those days. But the easy to get pockets gave out quickly, needed to go deep and take advantage of the natural fracked structure of the Monterey.
Did anyone mention that $10 billion of oil is just off IV? UCSB should just get that and use the proceeds to buy IV with power of eminent domain.

Yes, JJ, those voters were the new out-of-County SBCC students dumped into IV by the SBCC admin's policy of filling up the apartments in IV left empty by UCSB students who have moved on campus into the new dorms... the new dorms insisted upon by the Goleta community as part of the LRDP process. The UCSB students didn't bother to vote in the recent election.
