After questioning applicants who are proposing a zip line project in the Santa Ynez Valley, the county supervisors delayed the hearing until 7/19. The project ​— ​consisting of 20 individual zip lines ​— ​was unanimously approved by the county’s Planning Commission in January but was quickly appealed to the Board of Supervisors by a neighbor. Several speakers championed the project ​— ​“Kids can’t go wine tasting, and that’s all there is to do in the valley,” one said ​— ​but last-minute technical information that the appellant brought forward regarding Caltrans requirements necessitated the delay. County planners will review the information in the next month.
