Well, I just notice that Jarvis want to be a leader on issues of the houseless, and to be a leader he could publish his address here so the houseless can work together with him to maintain his leadership.
On Homeless Move into New Isla Vista Digs

Wow Jarvis, with all those ideas you should do some heavy lifting and invite IV's houseless to live on your street.

Well, Jarvis, IV has stepped up and pulled its weight.
Time for the City of Goleta, Noleta, and Montecito to stop sluffing and help their fellow man. Jarvis, if you really want to be a leader, you should consider publishing your street so the houseless can move in near you and you can be a real leader in this issue.

``The idea that Goleta should take over responsibility for Isla Vista does not recognize the fact that the city would not exist if I.V. had been included in its boundaries.''
This is false. The Goleta Roundtable polling circa 2000 showed that a city of Western Goleta + IV would pass at the ballot box. The West Goletans would have voted about 40-60 against, and IV would have been 90-10 in favor, and the city would have passed. But the West Goletans were unhappy, they hate Isla Vista and didn't want a city on those terms.
Meanwhile, the Isla Vista Sanitary District is the best Sanitary district in our region. Whoops, the West Goletans were so offended at the name that they demanded a name change from IV to Goleta West. And then the City of Goleta has baldly and unethically tried to dismember Goleta West and jettison Isla Vista, even though the district *started* in IV, has offices on the UCSB campus, and uses the processing facility once totally owned by UCSB, who gave it away to the IV San and the Goleta San.
Really, the Goleta people are unethical and morally bankrupt. The RNA they have is way too generous to them.
On Barking Up the Wrong Tree

IV residents have been reaching out to houseless people for decades. There are daily and weekly meals, and the free box where the houseless come to pick up castoffs from the more fortunate.
What is amazing is that all the effort is very rarely reported on by the South Coast media.
All the South Coast media cares about is reporting on IV in a sensational manner to get viewers and clicks to make money. The awful things that happen elsewhere... Holzer, San Marcos, the gay kidnapping in Hope Ranch, the cocaine death of a young lady at the Montecito Inn... they quickly are neglected by the South Coast media.

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.
On Governing the Anarchist Bubble of Isla Vista

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.
