There are some geographic realities I think need to be realized by the commenters who have called for building more and better housing in SB. I agree it would sure be nice if we could build more . But hard cold reality is that this would be very problematic. Please open your eyes and look around you. Santa Barbara has a "bowl shaped" topography. We have very limited space with the ocean on one side and the high mountains on the other. We've already packed a lot more people into most areas than is wise. The problems with adding yet more density are so obvious and numerous I think we all can figure it out----already too few ways out in the case of emergencies, pollution from packing in too many cars in this "bowl shaped" topography where smoke,exhaust, etc. get easily trapped, and all the health and quality of life issues crowding brings.

I know all the parties involved. Capello is an excellent lawyer. Alan Moelleken is a wonderful doctor--caring and skilled. The Cottage orthopedic surgeons are, for the most part also good doctors--especially Dr. Jones. The problem here is really Cottage as a monopoly. And that is a huge huge problem for Santa Barbara. Even tiny San Luis Obispo has two major and one small hospital---separately owned. Sansum Clinic merged into a monopoly and Cottage as well. This is super scarey for patients--for obvious reasons I won't bother to list. Dr. Moelleken's suit may bring more important issues to light--or perhaps not!
