A public park with the mainline coastal train line running through it! Great idea. Especially if the number of trains increases to provide commuter or Metrolink service.
Of course, those are reasons a 5 star resort won't work there, either. "$500 a night and you can't do anything about the train?" says the customer.
On Miramar Languishes in Limbo Amid Parking Concerns

Native: Because there are not enough riders in Santa Barbara. For transit rail to work you need "high density." Thems fighting words in SB!
While there are lots of good reasons to extend Metrolink to Santa Barbara and speed up the LOSAN corridor, neither will help with commuter traffic. How will you get passengers from the train station to their place of work?

And if the 101 is not expanded? What will be the impact on local roads then? Enough is enough. I have been driving the 101 for 42 years, it is the only coastal connector between LA and SF and points in between, it is time to add a lane.

Perhaps the Montecito Water District should just use its power of eminent domain, buy the property and build its own desal plant. Good location for it. Or maybe Rick can rent it out to CalTrans for a construction supply and storage area for the 101 expansion. Good location for that, too.

Great idea. Never happen. I expect the 101 through Montecito will be completed before an IV solution is found and passed.

While you are correct about the Oprah's hedges, it has nothing to do with Santa Barbara water rates. Oprah house is in Montecito and Montecito's problem.
On Cost Creep Lurks Over Desal Plant

You already drink poopy water. Bear, poop, dear poop, and fish poop. Sometime dead bodies have been in your water. If you are drinking state water it is water that has been pooped in in Sacramento, Redding, and Los Banos, to name a few. Colorado River water comes via Las Vegas, so it is sucker's poop water.
Recycle the waste water via reverse osmosis, pump it up to Jameson, mix with the bear and deer and fish poop, and it will be ready to go.

If you inject recycled water into the groundwater basin, how do you get all the private wells to pay for it when they pump the water out? Better plan would be to pump the water up to Jameson, and then use the existing water distribution system deliver the water to customers.

Oh, I do love the thought of eminent domain on the Miramar site! Let's face it, it is the best site for a desal plant in Montecito, it is on the ocean! I get the feeling Montecito thinks the best site for a Montecito deal plant is in Summerland or Carpinteria. Out of sight, out of mind, and won't bother us with pesky noises or smells.
