Caltrans always over does it. The curve re-alignment mentioned in the last paragraph is not necessary but Caltrans wants to do it because too many stupid drivers can't keep their speed below 65 MPH and negotiate the curve without smacking the center divider.

From the County website:
"The most recently calculated County costs for services within the City of Goleta in fiscal year 2013to 2014 is $11.8 million, and the revenue received under the tax sharing agreements is $8.8 million resulting, in a net annual subsidy to the City of Goleta of $3.0 million. In addition, the County separately estimated the cost of fire services in the incorporated City of Goleta for the fiscal year 2010 to 2011at a net loss of approximately $3.1 million."
So, if the City wants to revise the RNA, maybe they shoutd start providing the municipal servcies themselves.

Riding a fixed gear bike without any brakes may sound elite but basically it's a stupid idea. I commuted between SB and IV for several months on a track bike with a front brake and can't tell you the number of times I had to use it due to stupid behavior by primarily drivers and the occaisional dog. There is no way you can safely stop in a short distance without one.

Existing pension plans are protected by the State Constitution and recent court decisions (see San Jose Police Officers Association vs. City of San Jose) have invalidated attempts by jurisdictions to cut employer costs for pensions earned by current workers. It will be difficult for the Board of Supervisors to change the existing defined benefit plans for existing workers absent a change in the State Constitution.

"The MWD should not have allowed so many private wells to drain down the relatively shallow water table, especially since groundwater was the MWD's important fall back option."
Unless MWD owns the water rights they have a hard time preventing a private property owner from drilling their own well.
