It is not always what you think. Wilderness means no bikes, period. Read this to educate yourselves further, and this is taken right from this website: "Access in Congressionally designated Wilderness is by foot or horseback only and motorized or mechanized travel, including mountain bikes, is prohibited. Wilderness is recommended in these areas:
Dick Smith (32,273 acres)
Matilija (2,822 acres)
Chumash Wilderness (726 acres)"

then check out this full map view and try to figure out the details:

as far as the public being consulted, isn't this the first time you've heard about this? so much for public involvement.

then you need to know that Congressman Gallegly does not support this current proposal as well as the Los Padres Forest Association.

Wilderness is a good thing and we have plenty in our local forest already. I'm not so sure we need more because once the access is gone for various user groups, it's gone forever. We need more detailed maps and more upfront info on this to make a wiser decision.

Support California students first and foremost! Take care of university waste and over-compensated top administrations. Buckle up, trim the fat, stay local. Our state depends on it...

Yeh and if they dug deeper for soil conditions, then they'd hit the Chumash artifacts!

Environmentalism gone over-board! This is a @#$%& urban area, not some critical habitat. If a bird is stupid enough to be trying to set up shop in a clearly established urban environment, then that's what you call survival of the fittest. Why not trap and transport them to unspoiled habitats? They'll have a better chance there anyway. I'm soooo tired of this type of crap... there are so many other pressing environmental issues to deal with. Reality check please!

I find it hard to believe that that "disking" did not uncover any Chumash Indian artifacts.... and what about run-off into the local nearby stream- aren't there some pretty sensitive species in there?

East coast go away— you don't get it out here in the west.

On The Bixby Mystery

Please keep this project low-profile and ditch the narrowing of State Street which is one of the stupidest, out-of-date AND ridiculous ideas ever attached with this whole thing. The traffic congestion would be insane. The City does not realize how many local people use lower State just for getting around town via car and bike. It is OUR STREET!!! Throw in too many clueless tourists and it is a receipe for failure and bad planning. What were they thinking? This area deserves better, and it is not always about tourists.
