In the wake of Chumash leadership awarding approval to their resort expansion ​— ​and only partially yielding to some of the county’s requests ​— ​3rd District Supervisor Doreen Farr last week told constituents that the County CEO’s Office will continue to ask the tribe to discuss concerns, which hover mainly around the planned 12-story hotel wing and the expansion’s effect on County Fire, the Sheriff’s Office, and water use. Farr, who wants another supervisors hearing on the matter, will also be working with the California State Association of Counties to bolster counties’ input when tribes with 1999-inked compacts renegotiate those contracts with the state, as the Chumash will do in 2020.
