“I will continue monitoring the BIA process closely but maintain this issue is best resolved at the local level,” she said in a statement.
It's not a local issue, it's a federal issue. The County has no jurisdiction.
The process that allows land purchased from the County by foriegn governments, to not conform to the same land-use regulations should be illegal.
Otherwise the tribe can buy a house anywhere and put up a 12 story monstrosity or buy ag-land and build houses.
It's a federal issue and our Congresswoman needs to take ownership of this issue, which is negatively effecting all of us, including the Chumash whose tribal government has been taken over by gambling interests.
If the BIA process is broken, then intoduce legislation to fix it.

These planners are out of touch. They need to be elected because they currently are against public property like creeks and beaches. With elections, planners like Schwartz would either not be serving or have to stop kissing up to developers and serve the public.
