Get Janet out. JA? Maybe you forget, Aceves is a registered democrat. Janet has never given a hoot about the concerns of people. Only the concerns of EDC, GOO and the Unions.

I've been amazed people have continued to vote for him as long as they have. Same with Janet.
On Supervisors to Appeal Chumash Expansion

Everyone please come out. But don't be surprised to hear Janet Wolf parrot EDC's comments as well as Surfriders. Those in favor of protecting as much of the park as possible extend well beyond city officials to those of us who actually go there, went there as kids, took our kids there, etc. Matt, not very genuine to state the protective measures only benefit the turf. It protects existing parking, turf areas, picnic areas and beach access. Some of the revetment preceeds the Coastal Commission and go back over 40 years. Where is the evidence these have caused damage? Just asking. Both alternatives will, not may, result to loss of the overall area of the park. No if, ands or buts.

Here is what Goleta Bay looked like before the Park was built. This is what the natural process would create. Tabatha, look for yourself.

I actually think people should see those maps. It would give them a very good idea of what is to happen to GB if the natural process is allowed to happen at the western end. People could see for themselves what would happen there.http://hep.ucsb.edu/people/hnn/1903us...

The lot has not been core drilled. The lot areas were not exposed due to the storm mentioned. I find it fascinating the absolute lack of ability to understand the most basic of premise. I didn't deny my 10 years was a guess. The "serious" people that are fighting against any hard protection measures are all affiliated with EDC. Where is the neutrality in that? Where has EDC associated groups or folks ever come out on record to support hard protective measures should erosion become more extensive than what "they" guess? Keep your head in what's left of the sand and the beach. Removal of hard protection will lead to a loss of over 20% of the park. Dispute that. Oh and Tabitha, the very first "picture is a map". Show me how the public would access that.....you can't even make out #2 except for the sand spit/breakwater that you seem to refer to as a beach. God knows what #3 shows.

Tabatha, you just don't get it. There was no beach there before the channel was filled in. Where you seem to be talking about are beaches where there has always been a beach AND channel. That is simply not the case in Goleta. See the archive photos. Facts are really hard to ignore.

It's not as if they are "taking" the land back. They are paying for it. Ironic since they got nothing for it when it was taken from them.
On Chumash Reach Out to County Planning

The beach is artificial. Always has been. It only became a park in the current configuration when the Army Corp of Engineers filled in the areas that are now where the airport sits. The natural process would want to go back to what it was there....an open water channel.

Tabatha. You are right, let's just let the natural process do what it wants. Erode away the entire area back to the highway, where Cal Trans will build a hard revetment to protect access to UCSB. Look at historical photos, this was once an open water channel all the way to the airport.
The parking lot turned to beach? No core samples have been done to identify what's under the lot. When this was Army Corp property, it was a dumping ground, who know's what is under the asphalt. Also, the beach there will be short lived as the "natural erosion process" would lead to it's eventual loss. Probably in less than 10 years, but this is only a guess.
