UCSB Donating $70,000 for Isla Vista Fencing

UCSB announced Tuesday it will donate $70,000 to construct a permanent 4.5-foot fence along a 1,400-foot section of the Isla Vista bluffs. The county will handle the building and subsequent maintenance. Following the death last year of 20-year-old UCSB student Sierra Markee-Winkler, a temporary barrier was installed. Markee-Winkler’s parents, as well as a group called Fence Isla Vista, advocated for a more permanent project.
