Thank you, Santa Barbara Independent for your article “Carpinteria Community Says ‘ No’ to Proposed Hotel on the Bluffs” by Ryan P. Cruz.
As a person who lives in the Carpinteria area, I agree with the many Carpinterians who do not want a 99-room hotel and restaurant along our coastline. The traffic alone would be a problem.
Carpinteria has always been known as a small town with safe beaches. It is also the “last remaining coastal open space.”
Let’s keep it that way.
