The HOV lanes are needed, and a wider bridge over Cabrillo is another priority. The rest is BS.
On Freeway-Widening Food Fight Intensifies

It is extremely pitiful to watch Schneider, Carbajal and Francisco doing whatever it takes to line up Montecito donors for their future election plans!
As far as I can tell, the cost savings and environmental benefits of the Montecito plan are just smoke and mirrors hidden behind vague sketches.
Regardless of how the 101 widening through Montecito proceeds, the loss of vegetation will be enormous -with or without left ramps. Our only hope is an intense re-vegetation program to bring back some of what will be inevitably lost. This, and the replacement of the Cabrillo RR bridge is what Schneider, Carbajal and Francisco should be pushing for.
And why is Jeremy Lindaman calling the shots? Who elected him?

Nick,You are wrong: the City Planning Commission does not support the Montecito Association's alternative plan for the 101 widening. See PC comment letter of June, 2013. PC absolutely opposes truncating the HOV lanes.

The article talks about 33 apartments (not luxury condos) near the heart of downtown. This is where we want people to live -not out in the foothills, isn't it?

I think it is very divisive and, to a certain degree, un-american to ban a well established group like Veterans For Peace from participation in the 4th of July parade.
I applaud these group's dedication to our Country and to fellow service members as demonstrated by the crosses at West Beach. It was a very touching and pointed reminder that wars are not always glorious, and never cheap. That is their message, and this message should not be banned, especially on the 4th of July.

We certainly could use protected bike lanes in Santa Barbara! They are much cheaper to build than the isolated "Class I" bike ways and they would connect to many destinations now considered too dangerous by the non-lycra crowd.
Reading some of the comments above one would get the impression that bike lanes are unpopular here, or that improved intersections that allow children to walk to school in a safer manner are somehow undesirable! In what world, in what century do these folks live?

Great job, Melinda! Few people can describe complicated issues in simple terms, but you are absolutely the best! Thank you, and keep up the good work.

Yes, the Bathhouse needs upgrading and cleaning up but, will this project gentrify this home spot like so many others up and down the coast?
There is something absolutely appealing about the unpretentious, simple, grease-spoon breakfasts and lunches at East Beach. I take it over the Boat House (Arroyo Burro) any day.
