Neighbors Still Railing Against Fish Market Warehouse

For the second time this year, neighbors upset at the sounds and the odors emanating from the Santa Barbara Fish Market’s new warehouse at 528 North Quarantina are taking their gripes to the streets. They complain the market is still in operation five months after City Attorney Ariel Calonne concluded the warehouse violated city zoning and issued a cease-and-desist order. The problem is that the Fish Market was granted permits by City Hall after going step-by-step through its arduous review process. In the intervening months, officials have sought to negotiate an operating agreement that would ameliorate some of the problems. Dave Blunk, one of the upset neighbors, contends impacts of the fish market can’t be adequately finessed no matter what agreements are reached, and he urged City Hall to shut down the business and take whatever lumps accrue for permitting it in the first place
