City solicits public comments on Rincon Trail
The city of Carpinteria has released a report on environmental impacts of the revised Carpinteria Rincon Trail project which, when completed, would extend from the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue to the western end of Rincon Beach County Park. A 30-day public review period for the report, a Draft Subsequent Mitigated Negative Declaration, opened on Nov. 1, and will close on Dec. 2 at 5 p.m. The proposed Carpinteria Rincon Trail would be 16-feet wide (10-foot wide path with 3-foot wide paved shoulder along both sides) and approximately 2,800-feet long. The bridge would be approximately 160-feet-long, with a width of between 14 and 16 feet (clear width, measured inside the bridge rails). Earthwork for the trail construction would involve cutting 104,000 cubic yards—10,300 cubic yards of which would be used for fill on-site—and 94,100
cubic yards would be exported off-site. A storm drainage collection system is proposed, with new drain outlets to the ocean. The new, shared-use trail would connect Padaro Lane to the west and Rincon Beach County Park to the east as well as improve public coastal access. Copies of the report may be picked up at the temporary City Hall at 4180 Via Real, Suite B, at the public library, or online at carpinteria.ca.us/videos/ streaming.shtml Comments should be sent to Nick Bobroff, Community Development Department, at 5775 Carpinteria Avenue, Carpinteria, CA 93013 or nickb@ ci.carpinteria.ca.us. Comments will be heard in person at the Environmental Review Committee meeting on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 3 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall.
Air quality alert issued for Santa Barbara County
As the Maria Fire continued to burn thousands of acres in Ventura County, smoke impacted air quality throughout Santa Barbara County. The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department and Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District issued an Air Quality Alert through the weekend, or until conditions improved. In Carpinteria, under the direction of First District Supervisor Das Williams, a fine particulate matter (PM2.5) monitor has been set up at the Main School. High PM2.5 levels indicate an increased amount of air pollutant that may have health impacts. Throughout fire season, levels of smoke and particles, and areas impacted, will vary. “If you see or smell smoke in the air, be cautious and use common sense to protect your and your family’s health,” advised the county. “Everyone—especially people with heart or lung conditions (including asthma), older adults, pregnant women and children—should limit time spent outdoors and avoid outdoor exercise when high concentrations of smoke and particles are in the air.” Symptoms of smoke exposure include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chest tightness or pain, nausea and unusual fatigue or lightheadedness.
The county recommends that when smoke is present, residents stay inside with their windows and doors closed as well as creating a “clean air room” by running a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) purifier. Purifiers are available online or at home improvement stores and start at approximately $75. HEPA purifiers can reduce indoor particulate levels by up to 90 percent. A less expensive, but similarly effective, option involves attaching a MERV-rated filter to a box fan, which costs $30-$40. If using a mask, the county reminds residents to use N-95 masks correctly. N-95 masks can reduce smoke exposure outdoors by up to 95 percent but only if they fit properly. Scarves, bandanas and surgical masks are not effective and should not be used. Masks must fit snugly around the nose and chin, making them unsuitable for children or people with facial hair. People with heart and lung conditions should talk to their doctor before using an N-95 mask, as the masks can restrict airflow. N-95 masks should not be used to extend time outdoors beyond what is necessary. At press time, air conditions were good and the alert had been lifted.

Look out for your pets
While I was waiting at the counter for my order at a local restaurant, an employee took a phone call from someone who was asking if a patron there had left a dog in their car in the parking lot. The employee went around the restaurant asking everyone until she found the dog’s owner. He grumbled a bit about having left windows open in his car, but went out to check. Please remember: just because summer is over and the air outside is cooler lately, parking a car in the sun with windows partly open isn’t going to keep a dog’s body in a safe temperature range, not to mention its discomfort and possible fear as its surroundings get hotter. If you
PAIN, BURNING, OR NUMBNESS IN FEET OR HANDS?
think that your car will be cool enough for your dog for whatever length of time you plan to leave him there, try putting on a heavy coat or two, a scarf and warm hat, park your car in the sun with the windows down a bit, and sit inside for 15 minutes. I’ve copied the following paragraph from the American Veterinary Medical Association. Keep in mind that the temperature outside as I’m writing this is 70 degrees. “The temperature inside your vehicle can rise almost 20-degrees Fahrenheit in just 10 minutes. In 20 minutes, it can rise almost 30 degrees... and the longer you wait, the higher it goes. At 60 minutes, the temperature in your vehicle can be more than 40-degrees higher than the outside temperature. Even on a 70-degree day, that’s 110 degrees inside your vehicle! In addition, a study found that cracking the windows had very little effect on the temperature-rise inside the vehicle.” Please be responsible for the health, safety and comfort of your pets—they trust that you will provide that.

Planning Commission approves city’s acquisition of Bluffs parcels for Rincon Trail
At the Carpinteria Planning Commission’s Nov. 4 meeting, commissioners voted unanimously to support the city’s acquisition of three land parcels totaling approximately 3.819 acres within the Carpinteria Bluffs III planning area for the Carpinteria Rincon Trail, a project that will connect the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue with Rincon County Park. The proposed shared-use trail would be 16-feet wide and approximately 2,800-feet long, and would include a clear-span bridge over the railroad corridor. Caltrans has agreed to relinquish the property for construction of a trail that will function as a key connection in the California Coastal Trail and Carpinteria’s Coastal Vista Trail. Upon completion, the Coastal Vista Trail would connect Padaro Lane to the west and Rincon Beach County Park to the east. The city of Carpinteria recently released a Draft Subsequent Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project. Public comment on the document may be made through Dec. 2. The document and details on how to comment are at http://bit.ly/2Ckjnxi. The trail project itself will be considered by the Planning Commission at a future date; acquiring the Caltrans land is one step toward project approval. Formally, the action by the commission was to determine that the land acquisition was consistent with the city’s General Plan/Coastal Plan.

ARB recommends Lagunitas Business Park
The Lagunitas Business Park received a recommendation for Final Approval from the Architectural Review Board on Oct. 17. The complex will be located on the 6300 block of Via Real and will contain 82,874 square feet of new office space with 342 parking spaces, and landscaping on the balance of the 8.63-acre parcel. The developers indicate the building permit application will be submitted soon.
In deal with Chevron, city’s Skate Park could get easement for site
The Planning Commission voted unanimously to allow the city to acquire a 11,114-square-foot easement on property owned by Chevron for use as public parking to serve a future skatepark adjacent to City Hall. In turn, Chevron will be allowed an 1,893-square-foot city easement that provides the company street access onto the portion of its property where the city plans to build public parking. The skatepark project design has yet to be approved and recording the parking easement will not take place without project approval. The easement exchange will require no city funding; however, negotiations are ongoing. Formally, the action by the commission was to determine that the easement acquisition was consistent with the city’s General Plan/Coastal Plan.

Phase II is a new 49,050 square foot assisted-living facility for seniors that would contain 50 units. The project will be located next to the existing GranVida assisted living facility on Carpinteria Avenue. Story poles for the project were installed on Sept. 30, 2019. GranVida will return to the ARB for additional review on Dec. 12.

Cannabis taxes amount to $6.7 million to county
Santa Barbara County reported collecting $6.7 million in taxes from the cannabis industry in the 2018-19 fiscal year, an amount that exceeded estimates by $1.06 million. The fiscal year ending in June was the first year the county collected voter-approved taxes on cannabis. At the Board of Supervisors meeting on Nov. 5, supervisors elected to hold the excess revenue until budget workshops can be conducted. The cost of permitting, project appeals and enforcement consume much of the tax revenues while the county’s cannabis program is being enforced, though cannabis funds are allocated to the county’s general fund and can be appropriated for any county projects or programs. In the 2019-20 fiscal year, the county budget allocates $2.8 million to permitting and enforcement while anticipating $5.6 million in revenues.

Picture yourself driving in slow-andgo traffic toward Santa Barbara on a sunny fall day. Suddenly a little red sports car zooms past you on the shoulder, cuts in front of you, and zigzags its way through the traffic ahead. What thoughts cross your mind? Are you amused? Happy that car is getting somewhere quickly? Probably not. More likely you assume the driver is selfish and arrogant, and you can just picture his smug grin as he cuts you off. You find yourself hoping he gets pulled over and gets an expensive speeding ticket. A little later as you approach the Pueblo Street exit in Santa Barbara, you notice that same red sports car stopped in a line of cars exiting the freeway. As you pass it, you glance over and what you see surprises you. Behind the wheel is a nervous-looking young man. In the passenger seat you see his very, very pregnant wife sitting awkwardly and working to control her breathing. You suddenly realize they are trying to get to Cottage Hospital in time. In that instant, how do your thoughts about the situation change? You probably find yourself hoping they have no further delays and get there quickly. It is the same driver who cut you off just a few minutes earlier—nothing changed about that. What did change was how you perceived that driver. You initially assumed he was a self-centered jerk. But later you discovered his actions had an explanation you had not even considered. A few months later, you read an article in the Coastal View News about a new development proposed in town. The article quotes a successful Orange County developer who describes his plan for a large industrial facility plus a significant amount of high-density housing. He drones on about what a wonderful project it is, how much the community will benefit, yadda, yadda, yadda. You shake your head assuming this is just another get-rich-quick scheme by an outsider who doesn’t care about Carpinteria. You are shocked as you read positive comments by city staff and even City Council members. You decide to go to the next City Council meeting and speak your mind about this travesty. At the City Council meeting, you are frustrated that you must sit through presentations by the city staff and the developer before you can speak. But while you are impatiently waiting, you learn a few things. The residential part is to be low-income housing and transitional housing for local homeless. The industrial part is a nonprofit job training center for the residents, who will train abandoned puppies for search and rescue. The graduate dogs will work at disaster locations worldwide, and the dogs who don’t graduate will
“At the City Council meeting, you are frustrated that you must sit through presentations by the city staff and the developer before you can speak. But while you are impatiently waiting, you learn a few things.” be adopted out locally. The developer is now retired, moving to Carpinteria, and hoping to share the bounty of his successful career. When your turn to speak comes up, you find yourself unable to say anything negative. You have a déjà vu moment as you experience the same feeling you had when you saw the expectant parents trying to get to the hospital. Over the next few days you reflect on these experiences. How was your first instinct so wrong? You recognize that in both cases you assumed the worst motivations of others. You expected that an aggressive driver was just self-centered, and you “knew” that an Orange County developer was only interested in profit no matter what the effect was on the community. It dawns on you that if you assume the worst intentions of others, you will oppose them before you know any of the details. But if you assume positive intent, you are better able to ask questions, gather information and engage in conversation. You might then conclude the other person’s motives really do conflict with your interests and what is good for the community. But that is something you learn rather than assume. For example, imagine someone who plans to make a zillion dollars by replacing Linden Field with a toxic waste dump that could poison everyone within miles. Understanding their motivation to make money to support their family does not mean you have to agree with their proposal. The key is not assuming the worst but being curious and asking questions before forming an opinion. It is also a good idea to do your best to avoid cutting anyone off on the freeway whenever possible. Mike Wondolowski is president of the Carpinteria Valley Association (CarpinteriaValleyAssociation.org), a local organization dedicated to maintaining the small beach town nature of our community. In his 30 years of involvement in planning issues, he has witnessed visionary successes, as well as decisions that were later widely regretted. When not stuck indoors, he can often be found enjoying Carpinteria’s treasures including kayaking and snorkeling along the coast, running or hiking on the bluffs or the Franklin Trail, or “vacationing” as a tent camper at the State Beach.

Dangerous fire conditions and multiple blazes keep local crews on the move
By CHrisTiaN BeamisH
Even in a region grimly accustomed to wildfires, the blazes throughout Southern and Northern California this October have been notable for the sheer number of incidents. From the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County to the Real, Saddleridge, Tick, Getty, Easy and Hillside fires, along with the most-recent Maria Fire in Santa Paula, crews in Santa Barbara, Ventura and LA counties have been on high alert and near-constant deployment. Firefighters from Carpinteria have also seen their share of action. The season got off to a slow start for local firefighters with few incidents in the month of September. But the Real Fire on Oct. 17 near El Capitan on the Goleta coast brought in Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District personnel. As dangerous fire conditions developed through the month of October, a “Strike Team” consisting of a battalion chief and five engines with four personnel each from across Santa Barbara County was pre-positioned across the “front country” slope of the Santa Ynez Mountains along the South Coast of Santa Barbara County. “We had a wet winter (last year),” explained Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Robert Kovach, “which promoted good growth” on hillsides and canyons. Combined with low humidity and Santa Ana winds of 40- to 60-mph, the “alignment is there,” the Chief said of the elements contributing to this year’s high number of fires. “Once something gets going,” Kovach added, “it runs.” Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District firefighters on the Strike Team were deployed from their prepositioning in the Santa Barbara “front country” to the Tick Fire in LA County on Oct. 24. En route, the crew caught and extinguished a brush fire in La Conchita which they humorously referred to as a “warm up.” From the Tick Fire, the 20 personnel and five engines drove directly to the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County on Oct. 27, and assisted with containment efforts there until their return to Santa Barbara County on Nov. 1. Firefighters on Strike Team assignment often work 30 hours without sleep, as the demands of an incident dictate. Before being relieved, a Strike Team can spend up to 14 days on a fire (and sometimes

Kathy Hoxsie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, announced that Santa Ana winds will remain at bay for the next few days, but strong gusts are forecast to return to Southern California over the weekend of Nov. 9-10.

Making Montecito safer: Building a debris basin at San Ysidro Creek
By Melinda Burns
In the early morning of Jan. 9, 2018, seven homes were destroyed and two people died on Randall Road in Montecito as a raging torrent of mud and boulders jumped the banks of San Ysidro Creek. It was one of the deadliest places to be in Montecito that day. A catastrophic debris flow, triggered by extreme rainfall on the burned mountainside, descended on the sleeping community below, damaging more than 200 homes and killing 23 people. Two of the victims lived just below Randall on East Valley Road and Glen Oaks Drive. Now, the county is designing a debris basin on eight acres at the intersection of Randall and East Valley—effectively, an enormous dirt bowl to help trap the boulders and uprooted trees that can surge over the banks of San Ysidro Creek during the worst storms. It will be 10 times the size of the existing debris basin, which is located higher on the creek, near Park Lane. “I’m really excited to be able to be a part of something this big,” Tom Fayram, deputy director of county Public Works, said after a county design workshop on Monday. “I don’t want to lose the momentum. You don’t see this very often, so you have to grab that and go forward and get it done. If I would have proposed this basin in 2017, you would have seen this room full of mad, screaming people.” The new basin is on a fast track; environmental review is already underway. If state and federal permits can be obtained in time, construction will begin in the summer of 2021, with a finished basin by the fall of that year, county officials said. In addition, they said, they are designing a new dam outlet for the existing basin on San Ysidro Creek so that instead of clogging the basin, fine sediment will flow downstream. On Jan. 9, 2018, the fast-flowing mud, rocks and trees overtopped this small basin by as much as 30 feet. On Monday, county officials ticked off a list of 15 storm disasters that have battered Montecito with major debris flows or debris-laden floods since 1862. On San Ysidro Creek, a major gas line and several homes have been hit more than once. A map by Partners in Community Renewal, a new nonprofit group in Montecito, was displayed on a big screen, highlighting the dramatic change in topography in the Randall/East Valley roads neighborhood, post-Jan. 9, 2018. In some locations, the piles of mud and rocks left behind by the debris flow were 15 feet high.

“To reach this point is huge,” Curtis Skene, the Partners co-founder and executive director, told the audience. After Skene lost his home on East Valley Lane, he approached Fayram with the concept of a debris basin on Randall and got the property owners – his neighbors – on board. “We are going to work with the county, and we are going to see what else we can do on other creeks to mitigate the risks,” Skene said. Below East Valley, about 95 homes along San Ysidro Creek were destroyed or damaged, and more than 200 other properties took on mud and water. According to a study by the U.S. Geological Survey, more debris was deposited along San Ysidro Creek during last year’s catastrophe than along Montecito, Oak, Romero or Buena Vista creeks. “We don’t want another disaster to pass before we make some fundamental change to increase our resilience and our safety,” said county Supervisor Das Williams, who represents Montecito. “We are immensely committed to making a difference and not going back.” The new basin on San Ysidro Creek is estimated to cost $20 million, a price tag that includes land acquisition. On Monday, county officials said they were optimistic that the Federal Emergency
Management Agency would pick up 75 percent of the cost, leaving the county to cover 25 percent. In all, eight properties must be purchased: seven on Randall and one on East Valley. The county purchased the only home still standing on Randall for $4 million last May. “What you’re seeing here tonight is, we have gone all-in,” said Jon Frye, county flood control engineering manager. From the audience came a question: Would the new basin have captured all of the debris that surged over the banks of San Ysidro Creek on Jan. 9, 2018? N o t c o m p l e t e l y, Fayram replied, adding, “We still would have had a significant flow. But it certainly would have helped … All of our debris basins ‘worked’ in the debris flow.” The new basin will be hidden from East Valley by a berm landscaped with shrubs and trees, county officials said. “It’s going to look more like open space than a debris basin,” Fayram said. “There’s no dam, there’s no rock spillway; there’s going to be a trail going through there.” The Ennisbrook Trail from San Leandro Lane presently ends on the south side of East Valley near Randall Road. This trail will be continued northward on what is now Randall Road. Three parking

spaces for hikers will be provided. Also, Partners in Community Renewal is talking with the Immaculate Heart Community, the Los Angeles-based owners of La Casa de Maria, a former spiritual retreat, about a possible trail easement along San Ysidro Creek, just north of Randall. La Casa lost nine buildings there on Jan. 9, 2018. If the talks are successful, Skene said, the public will be able to hike all the way from East Valley up to the San Ysidro Trailhead on Mountain Drive. Currently, there is a gap in the trail system in this location. Skene’s childhood home at 1709 East Valley Lane was destroyed last year in the debris flow: he barely escaped, he said, “by a foot or so.” And it was the second time around for him. During the massive debris flow of 1969, Skene said, as a boy of 14, he watched, petrified, as the mud rose three feet high along a four-foot-high wall of sandbags he had helped erect around the house. On Jan. 9, 2018, Skene lost everything. “You have a ‘Come to Jesus’ moment,” he said. “You focus on how grateful you are. I said to myself in the days afterward, ‘There’s gotta be something I can do.’” So, Skene, who had never attended a community meeting, did not follow local news, and could not have told you who his county supervisor was or what he did, became a key liaison between the county and the property owners on Randall Road. When he talks about the respect he has for Fayram and Frye, he gets emotional. “I feel like I’ve been through a war with these guys,” Skene said. “This basin will really, really, really make a difference.” The second installment of this two-part series will appear next week.

Armendariz and Williams square off over Trump By ChriStiAn BeAMiSh Nimmer/HechtCo Productions organized a live debate at the alcazar Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 3, centering on the question, “Should President Trump be re-elected?” representing the “yes” side was Santa Barbara News Press writer and former Carpinteria Councilmember Joe armendariz, a self-described “ronald reagan/Jack Kemp republican.” First District Supervisor and Democrat Das Williams took the “no” side in the debate. moderated by former County Supervisor Gail marshall, the debate was organized in three, 20-minute segments giving each speaker the opportunity to make opening statements, pose and respond to questions from one another and answer both pre-selected as well as audience-generated questions. Larry Nimmer introduced the speakers and noted that he organized the debate out of the belief that “it’s important to listen to the other side… and come to an informed opinion.” Both speakers remained composed and civil throughout the ensuing debate. responding to the central question regarding whether Trump should be reelected, armendariz described himself as at first being opposed to the Trump campaign. “i was one of the original, hashtag ‘Never Trumpers’… i am aware of some of the idiosyncrasies of this president… but when you look at the metrics… the lowest unemployment in 50 years, the lowest Hispanic unemployment in 50 years (and black unemployment, female Hispanic and black female unemployment) i think the answer to that question is yes.” “Here’s my metrics,” Williams responded: “more criminal indictments per year than the Nixon administration, Charlottesville, the muslim ban, Family Separation, Stormy Daniels, michael Cohen, Bro-mances with Kim Jung Un and Vladamir Putin, suppressing science throughout the federal government, withdrawal from the Paris accord, selfdealing in the ever-growing swamp, inciting violence against the media, tax cuts for the super-rich, rudy Guilliani and a shadow foreign policy, betrayal of the Kurds, blackmailing Ukraine…” Williams said, “i really want to aim my words towards some of the people who are maybe conservative, or ‘middle-ofthe-roaders.’ i know you have doubts, i know you wonder if this is really the right person or message that can pull this country together… i think we all need to be part of the solution, (and) that does not include the continuation of the Trump administration.” armendariz declined to argue either the criminal or moral implications of the current administration’s policies (“i am not a lawyer,” he said) but cited Trump’s campaign pledges to pull the U.S. out of middle eastern military entanglements as an explanation for abandoning Kurdish allies in Syria. Turning his attention to Williams, armendariz asked “…when did you become a neo-hawk?” Williams replied, “i believe that when you break something, you fix it…” referring to the longstanding U.S. involvement first in iraq, and more recently in Syria. “Don’t conservatives have an obligation… to say ‘no,’ and reject (Trump)?” Williams asked. armendariz replied, “We can talk all afternoon about whether or not Donald Trump is corrupt relative to any other politician…” and suggested that no one can attain the office of the presidency without making unsavory compromises along the way. “is Donald Trump corrupt?” armendariz asked rhe-

Williams pointed to the revenue generated for local schools, improved county enforcement and his efforts to find common ground between constituents on either side of the commercial cannabis issue. responding to an audience-member’s question as to whether or not Trump is a just, honest president, armendariz stated that “Policies can be corrupt…” a concept he’d mentioned earlier in the debate, “and that’s whether it’s fiscal, economic, monetary, regulatory, land use… that result in lost jobs, lost homes, lost opportunities, under-funded schools, is [sic] a corrupt, immoral idea.” Williams said, “i believe america deserves both policy competence and honesty… there are people who have both. i just don’t believe he (Trump) is that.” Continuing, Williams said “even if you agree with (Trump) on many policies… he is dishonest, combative, he is willing to undermine institutions—including the basic traditions of our republic—for short-term gain…” armendariz had the last word in the debate, turning his focus on California and Santa Barbara County: “We (California) have the highest poverty rate in the country… Santa Barbara County has the third-highest poverty rate in the state… that is unacceptable, it is immoral, we have to do something about it, and Das, i hope that is a priority for you—i believe it is—but it has to be a priority for every elected official in this state. We cannot go forward by leaving any families behind. it’s wrong, it’s immoral, and in California, we can do much, much better.”
CITY OF CARPINTERIA NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF DRAFT SUBSEQUENT MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR THE PROPOSED Carpinteria Rincon Trail Date of this Notice: October 29, 2019 Project 19-2015-CUP/CDP Project Description: The proposed Carpinteria Rincon Trail would extend from the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue, in the City of Carpinteria, to Rincon Beach County Park, in Santa Barbara County. The proposed shared-use trail would be 16-feet wide (10-foot wide path with 3-foot wide paved shoulder along both sides) and approximately 2,800-feet long, and would include a clear-span bridge over the UPRR alignment. The bridge would be approximately 160-feet-long, with a width of between 14-feet and 16-feet (clear width, measured inside the bridge rails). Earthwork for the trail construction would involve 104,000 cubic yards of cut, 10,300 cubic yards of which would be used for fill on-site and 94,100 cubic yards would be exported off-site. A storm drainage collection system is proposed, with new drain outlets to the ocean, The new, shared-use trail would provide a strategic addition to Carpinteria’s Coastal Vista Trail that upon completion, would connect Padaro Lane to the west and Rincon Beach County Park to the east. In addition to providing critical improvements in public safety, the completion of this trail segment would provide improved public coastal access and recreational opportunities, and enhancement of non-vehicular travel alternatives to the region’s significant coastal resources. Project Location: The proposed Carpinteria Rincon Trail would extend from the eastern end of Carpinteria Avenue in the City of Carpinteria to the western end of Rincon Beach County Park and the Ventura County Line in Santa Barbara County.

The BLM shares with California roughly 50 percent of oil and gas royalties collected with the remaining 50 percent in oil and gas royalties being paid to the U.S. Treasury. Public lands in California contribute to less than 10 percent of the total oil and gas activity in the state. “At a time when the climate crisis demands that California move away from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy, it is the epitome of irresponsibility to expand fracking and drilling in our state,” said Ana Rosa Rizo-Centino of Food & Water Action. “The climate-charged wildfires raging throughout California and the loss of life and billions in damages they create, demonstrate the profound urgency of the crisis.” Rizo-Centino called on Governor Newsom “to counter Trump’s
plans by halting all new drilling on state or private land in California to protect us from proposed oil and gas expansion in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties and throughout the state.” “Every step of the way, the Trump administration declined to do its job to put public health and the safety of the environment before corporate interests,” said Rebecca August, ForestWatch advocacy director. “It’s sad to see such disregard for the future of our public lands and the communities that depend on them.” The Trump administration has also invoked a technical provision which denies the public a formal appeal or public review process to the BLM’s decision. ForestWatch is working with its partners to evaluate “next steps.” “The matter could end up back in federal court,” according to the nonprofit’s leadership.

Fall is for planting: Perennial gardens for year-round abundance
EXPLORING THE VALLEY’S WILD AND CULTIVATED SPACES
ALENA STEEN As we hope for winter rains as nourishing as last year’s, now is the time to prepare perennial garden space. Many vegetable farms and gardens operate on a seasonal cycle of annual plants whose short lives span the longer, warmer days of spring to fall. In contrast, perennial plants have life spans ranging from several years to several decades (or even centuries, in the case of many trees) and provide a host of opportunities for yearround food and forage for the human and other-than-human world alike. Perennials are integral to the design of any garden, and growing long-lived plants is a deep investment in the time and space of your garden. Taking many years to mature, perennials provide diversity of structure, food and shelter throughout the winter months when annuals have reached the end of their lives. Perennials are the shapes and forms a garden is designed around, since they persist through the years. They are the engineers of soil biology, building healthy garden soil over time thanks to the natural processes of leaf drop, fungal partnerships in long-lived root systems, and the pulses of water and microorganisms that plant growth creates. Even a small space can grow a dense garden that provides a living landscape year-round. As human-caused climate change and habitat destruction continue to threaten many precious and unique plant, animal, bird and insect species, we can help counter these losses with urban habitat as refuges of food, water, and shelter. In coastal Southern California, late fall and early winter are the best time to plant perennials while soil is soft and workable from winter rains and plants have a cool, wet period of acclimation before the heat of the next summer. The choices of perennial plantings are almost endless: “low chill” fruit trees for year-round food production, California native plants for food and nesting materials for the many native insects and birds that make coastal California so vibrantly diverse and other edible and medicinal plants that grow vigorously in our mild climate. California native plants are very desirable in a long-lived garden plan. They are the most low-maintenance plants, growing happily in poor soil without supplemental watering. In fact, for many native plants the greatest danger is soil that is too rich or too consistently watered. Most natives prefer well-drained soil and the seasonal watering to which they are accustomed, including more than six months without water. However, if you wish to keep natives showy and abundantly flowering through the summer, just provide low-drip irrigation to thoroughly soak the soil every month or so. For a list of some of my favorite native plants for the home garden, see my previous article from October 2018 on coastalview.com. For all other perennials, including fruit trees and non-native species, it is espe-
Toyon, Heteromeles arbutifolia, is one of the best native perennials to plant for winter food. Tart berries ripen in winter when most other food for birds is limited, and one tree in your backyard can attract flocks of cedar waxwings. cially important to take the time to build healthy, living soil capable of sustaining plant growth for many years. The most important step is to add high-quality compost to your soil. If you do not have the time and space to create your own, choose to support local producers of living compost. While there are organic options now available in garden stores, many are sterilized with high heat processes that cook all the microorganisms responsible for soil health. Instead, go to a local farmers market and find the person selling homegrown worm compost, or look for “living” varieties at the store. Even a small amount of compost can make a huge difference in a plant’s vigor and success, although more is always best. In general, I apply three to four inches of compost to the top layer of soil,
turning it into the soil with a shovel or spading fork. Once soil has been gently soaked, it is time to transplant. Make sure plants are firmly pressed into the ground—root to soil contact is one of the primary triggers to growth, so don’t feel shy to step or tamp around a plant’s base. Another important step for a perennial garden is a thick layer of organic mulch such as leaf litter, wood chips, or straw. Mulch serves to protect soil from the harsh effects of the sun and conserves water. There is often free mulch in front of City Hall on Carpinteria Avenue for small-scale pick-up. In addition, Santa Barbara County offers unlimited free mulch if you pick up at the transfer station, or will deliver for a small fee. See lessismore.org for details. And most importantly, let fallen leaves lie—they are
free compost and mulch in a perennial garden, as well as important habitat for many over-wintering insects such as one of our showiest native pollinators, the day-flying sphinx moth. growing a garden of long-lived plants is a choice which holds a lot of hope. Dense, perennial gardens are wishes for a long and healthy garden life, as well as a gift to the many creatures which call our community home.

Paige Van Tuyl brings 18 years of nonprofit management experience to her role as executive director of the Carpinteria Arts Center.
Carpinteria Arts Center names Paige Van Tuyl as executive director
Coming off her first day on the job as the executive director of the Carpinteria Arts Center, Paige Van Tuyl said, “I have just met 25 of the nicest people imaginable,” referring to the staff and volunteers with whom she will be working. A graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in the History of Art and Architecture, Van Tuyl brings 18 years experience in nonprofit work. She has held leadership positions at Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara City College Foundation. “I am excited to explore the opportunities to increase our impact as we build momentum as an organization,” Van Tuyl shared. She looks forward to “exploring new ways to craft and enhance our community’s experience, locating greater philanthropic partnerships, increasing awareness and value of the Arts Center’s identity and elevating the conversation around the arts.” Van Tuyl grew up in Mission Canyon Santa Barbara but has lived in Carpinteria for 17 years. Van Tuyl (pronounced “tile” from the Dutch) brings many local connections to her new position.
With the recent completion of the Art Center’s 865 Linden Avenue building, including new galleries, kitchen and studios and a refurbished courtyard, Boardmember David Powdrell said, “Having (Van Tuyl) at the helm will help elevate our nonprofit organization to meet its vision of being among the premier small-town community arts centers in America.” Board Chair Casey Summar added, “(VanTuyl) is exactly the dynamic leader the board was seeking for the Arts Center ’s next chapter. Our tremendously bright future just got that much brighter.” Van Tuyl also said “Getting my degree in the History of Art and Architecture inspired all of the moves in my career that have thankfully landed me at the Carpinteria Arts Center. It’s the smartest thing I’ve ever done.” When asked about her vision for the Arts Center, Van Tuyl mentioned collaborative events involving food, wine and music, opening the Arts Center for private events as a revenue stream and ensuring that “every single student in Carpinteria crosses our threshold at least once a year.” ––ChristianB eamish

“Beloved” by Toni Morrison
“Lucy Dreaming” by Max Bemis
Lucy is a sarcastic loner and much like other 13-year-old kids, she does not feel like she fits in with the rest of society. She’s a voracious reader and would rather get lost in a book than socialize with her peers. One night, she goes to sleep and finds herself as one of the archetypal female protagonists from her books. Every time she goes to sleep, she’s in someone else’s body taking out the bad guys. However, she finds that these dreams are not merely figments of her imagination but something that she is truly experiencing. When she’s in the shoes of a space-princess fighting battles, she’s really in danger of getting hurt and possibly dying. She finds out her best friend (and crush) is also experiencing the same dreams. However, instead of embracing the role of the hero, Welsey decides to take on the role of the villain. The real world and the dream world blur, putting people’s lives in danger. Lucy must put her feelings aside and defeat Welsey in order to restore balance between the real world and dream world. Recommended for teens and their parents who would appreciate a brilliant reference to a No Doubt song. Some may find the story a little convoluted and Lucy a little bratty, but the humor and artwork are worth the read. ––Blanca Ramirez, Librarian, Carpinteria Library
It’s hard to fathom the loss of Pulitzer Prize winning author and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison. So much of her brilliant, brave and exquisitely beautiful body of work was about including what was missing—filling the gaps, piecing stories together in voices we hadn’t heard and resting them side by side. Before she was an author, Morrison was an editor, a single mother and a student of literature that bristled at reductive depictions of blackness that said more about the white men that created them. She set out to write books she’d like to read, untold stories from the AfricanAmerican community. “Beloved” was one such story not to be told, inspired by a newspaper account of Margaret Garner, a mother who killed her daughter rather than condemn her to a life of slavery. Decades after its publication, people still seek to ban this powerful exploration of the legacy of slavery and other Morrison works. Read or revisit “Beloved” and think of stories that haven’t been told in your community. —Giti White, Friends of the Carpinteria Library volunteer

The Carpinteria Library Book Club is reading “The Girl Who Smiled Beads” by Clementine Wamariya and Elizabeth Weil. Clementine was a child when a horrific civil war began in Rwanda. With her 15-year-old sister, Claire, she spent six harrowing years wandering through seven African countries. Finally, the girls were accepted as refugees into the United States. In Chicago, Claire married and had children, while Clementine was taken in by a well-off family.

Before night fell on All Hallows’ Eve, dozens of costume-clad children and their families met at the Carpinteria Arts Center courtyard for the town’s silliest and spookiest event of the season: a Halloween costume contest sponsored by the Howard School. It’s the first year that the Howard School has put on a community costume contest, but when over 100 people came out for the event, they knew that they had started a tradition they’d be continuing for years to come, said Jason Rodriguez, Howard School parent/board member who helped organize the event. “The event went really well—it was reminiscent of the costume contests from my childhood in my hometown,” said Rodriguez. “I grew up in a small community and we would always have a costume contest in the town center. That’s a memory of mine that has lasted into adulthood for me.” Several businesses pitched in for prizes and small delights for kids, and the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office brought McGruff the Dog and a trunk full of treats. “There were people of all ages there and in costume having a good time,” Rodriguez said, “the event really brought everybody together.”

By Alonzo orozco • Photos By rosAnA swing Last Saturday, Nov. 2, the Carpinteria High School boys basketball team was in the midst of tryouts. For the second season in a row, the Warriors program will be under new leadership, as last year’s coach Corey Adam joined the coaching staff at his alma mater, Santa Barbara High. The 2018-19 season was a memorable one with Carpinteria enjoying one of its most successful journeys, making it all the way to the CIF-SS semifinals, as well as participating in the CIF State Tournament. The team’s new coach, Scott Sorich, has seen his share of successes on the hardwood as well. As an assistant at nearby St. Bonaventure in Ventura, Sorich helped guide the Seraphs to four consecutive TriValley League titles and a trip to the 2018 CIF-SS Four-AA championship game. As the JV coach, his squad went undefeated for three straight seasons. As a studentathlete at Santa Clara in Oxnard, he was a member of the 1997 CIF-SS championship team under the tutelage of coach Lou Cvijanovich. But this season, the new coach will be without the services of 2019 graduates: Ali Hamadi, Myles Morgan, Noah Nuno, Chris Ramirez and David Serrano. Although, Sorich lost some key contributors, he so far likes what he sees from this year’s group. “I’m excited, the players look good, they’ve got good chemistry,” said Sorich. “The fact that they’ve all known each other, and they’ve played a lot together, even in the offseason that helps a lot,” he explained. The Warriors will have eight returners from last season: Jo Jo Gonzalez, Mateo Handall, Gabe Medel, Caleb Nangle, Luke Nakasone, Dylan O’Neill, Ian Reed and Jose Suarez. Four of those returners:
Medel, Nakasone, Reed and Suarez play together with a local club team, the Mavericks. “Staying involved and actively working on their skill set throughout the year is important,” Sorich said. He knows this firsthand from his experience as the director of Ventura County Swoosh, a club basketball program that he started in 2010. Like many Carpinteria basketball teams over the years the squad will rely on the talents of a few key players, with Suarez and Nakasone likely to be called on to win the battle of the boards when it comes to rebounding against taller opponents. Multi-sport standout Tyler Cervantes, who also plays both football and basketball, is expected to provide some muscle as well. Senior Esteban Zapata and juniors Junior Najera and Justin Rogers round out the rest of the squad. Although, he hasn’t looked at film of this year’s competition in the Citrus Coast League, Sorich is familiar with many of the coaches. “I know that Scott Hannah’s been (coaching) a couple years at Nordhoff, and he’ll be able to put his imprint on that program,” he said. “Same thing with Hueneme, I believe they’ve graduated quite a few players, not sure what Marty’s (Meyer) working with over there.” Hueneme won the inaugural Citrus Coast League championship with the Warriors taking second last season. Carpinteria will start a new basketball era on Nov. 22 when they travel to play Channel Islands with the tip-off at 7:30 p.m. On Dec. 4, they’ll host long-time rival Bishop Diego in a showdown at Warriors Gym starting at 7 p.m.

Last month marked Coastal View News’ 25th year of publishing—a milestone we reached thanks to the support of the community. On the ﬁrst Thursday of each month CVN publishes the Honor Roll to thank readers and advertisers for their generous support. For the past ten years, this support has played a critical role in keeping CVN in the stands each week and full of local news that cannot be found in any other media. The outpouring of support inspired by the Honor Roll has established a deeper connection between the newspaper and its readers. Additionally, the hundreds of names that appear in the Honor Roll have also sent a message to advertisers—Carpinterians are dedicated to their local newspaper. In turn, the staff of CVN is dedicated to its readers. As the publishers of your community newspaper, we appreciate the relationship we have with you, our readers, and we pledge to keep bringing you all the news of the Carpinteria Valley.

Those granite spires
unpredictable wilderness chuck graham The Cow Fire burned brightly to the south, smoke wafting skyward and colliding with billowing, puffy monsoonal clouds hovering above the Eastern Sierra. It was early last September, and I had a great vantage point to watch fire and monsoon. I stumbled upon the perfect plateau and laid out my sleeping pad and sleeping bag tucked between granite slabs buffering from any possible winds my bed for the night. The sun had already set behind me as I sat in my sleeping bag, monsoon and wildfire keeping to the south of me. I was camped at 12,500 feet, well above Chicken Spring Lake—just me, the yellow-bellied marmots and chirping pikas all concealed somewhere within the granite clefts, caves and alcoves. Sierra bighorn sheep were around too, but I had no luck locating their outwardly curling horns and nimble hooves on the steepest, most sheer granite walls and slabs. They could’ve been looking right at me, but they blend in so well in their surrounding habitat, and that makes them difficult to detect. However, the mountains aren’t going anywhere, and I’ll be back before it’s snowed in. I dream about them all the time, those granite spires in the Eastern Sierra. As much as the Santa Barbara Channel and the Channel Islands National Park draw me close every day, I always need that gritty, granite fix. The years just don’t feel complete unless there’s quality time spent on California’s 14ers. Thirteen of the Golden State’s 15, 14,000-foot peaks are in the Eastern Sierra. They are a good training ground, always scenic and my last two excursions at 14,000 feet my camera was always out, bighorn on the brain. Fortunately, I slept well as I always do when I’m outside above tree-line. The aridity, stillness, mind-boggling stargazing and that cool, crisp air always allows
me to be comfortable snoozing amongst the granite. Dawn was spectacular. The highest peaks always look best before sunup. Rising before first light, Cirque Peak, Mount Langley and Mount Whitney jutted prominently to my immediate north. I could hear several backpackers speaking below, their voices carrying up to me 2,500 feet above, making me appreciate my secluded campsite that much more. I quickly scrambled over to Cirque Peak, tapping out on its 12,900-foot summit before heading back down a steep scree slope to Chicken Spring Lake. Back within the trees I was gratefully overwhelmed by chipmunks, golden-mantled squirrels, more marmots, black-capped chickadees and small flocks of mountain bluebirds. After descending Horseshoe Meadow, I looked for herds of Tule elk along Highway 395 before finding a car camp along Movie Road in the Alabama Hills. Lots of fantastic movies filmed within the unique, high desert landscape of those granite clusters. Epic scenes from Clint Eastwood’s “Joe Kidd,” Steve McQueen in “Nevada Smith,” Russell Crowe in “Gladiator,” and Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio in “Django Unchained” popped into my head as a trail of dust wafted behind my truck. Eventually, I found a great spot with tall clusters of granite behind me and to the west and sunset views of the desolate Inyo Mountains to the east. A canyon wren and a great horned owl were all that broke the high desert silence as I drifted off to sleep. Again, I was up well before first light. I had a date with an archway, and I couldn’t be late The Alabama Hills are a natural wonder and hidden within that granite fortress are some amazing archways that perfectly frame the North Ridge of Lone Pine Peak, Mount Whitney and Mount Russell. For 45 minutes from before first light and just after the first soft hues of alpenglow drape across the high peaks, the light shifts magically until it becomes to harsh to shoot anymore. It’s less than an hour, time well spent at 5,000 feet watching the light dance across all those iconic mountaintops.
Chuck prepares his sunset campsite at 12,500 feet overlooking Chicken Spring Lake in the Eastern Sierra.

City of Carpinteria carpinteria.ca.us
From the CITY MANAGER Dave Durflinger
Every ten years the U.S. Census Bureau attempts to count every person in the United States. The next U.S. Census count will begin April 1, 2020. A complete and accurate count of the population in California, Santa Barbara County, and Carpinteria, is important because Census data affects the distribution of federal funds to state and local governments, including the City of Carpinteria, influences the redrawing of county and state legislative districts, and determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives. The City of Carpinteria is working with both state and county campaigns seeking to ensure that all Carpinterians, along with county and state residents, get their fair share of federal resources and legislative representation by encouraging participation in Census 2020. Census data, by federal law, is confidential and only used to produce statistics. It cannot be shared with immigration or law enforcement agencies or used to determine eligibility for governmental benefits. Census data is used for myriad purposes beneficial to our community. The data
is used to advocate for community resources and ensure adequate public safety and school and public health services. It is also routinely referenced by businesses to decide where to locate, creating local jobs and investment. This Census is particularly important for Carpinteria. In 2010 there was an undercount of Carpinteria’s population that has resulted in a loss of significant revenue for City services over the last decade. For example, federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) revenue is allocated to the City based in part on population. The decline in population reported in the last census negatively affected the City’s CDBG allocation. CDBG revenue is used to support organizations that provide services to Carpinteria youth, seniors, and lower income families. Also, the City will be relying heavily on Census information as a part of the process of drawing district election maps for the new City Council district elections that begin November 2022. California has been identified as a state with a hard-to-count population given a number of demographic factors such as its considerable number of foreign-born residents, renters, and people without internet access (this will be the first census relying heavily on people filling out the form online). For similar reasons, many households in Carpinteria are expected to be hard to count. The City’s population was adjusted downward by about 7% CITY MANAGER cont. on page 3

Fall Community Partner Award Recipients
The City of Carpinteria is pleased to announce this fall’s Community Partner Award recipients, Home for Good and a group of volunteers who provide weekly hot lunch to Carpinteria’s homeless community. Homelessness is a complicated issue that cities around the nation are struggling to effectively address. Our Community Partner Award recipients work diligently and compassionately to put an end to homelessness. These groups recognize that each individual has a unique set of circumstances, and many grapple with physical and mental health issues. Understanding these diverse needs and meeting them is a necessary step toward permanent housing.
Home for Good
Home for Good, a Santa Barbara County United Way initiative, connects individuals experiencing homelessness with long-term housing, working in collaboration with the City of Carpinteria and the County of Santa Barbara. The initiative, overseen by Santa Barbara County United Way, has a highly active Carpinteria arm led by Housing & Outreach Coordinator Travis Baxter. Baxter manages a full-time Americorps member in Carpinteria and creates a critical nexus of community volunteers and organizations who focus on connecting people that are homeless with the services they need, working alongside Santa Barbara County Behavioral Wellness and Public Health. “Travis and his team have done exceptional work,” said Eddie Taylor, CEO of Northern Santa Barbara County United Way. As the lead agency in Santa Barbara County’s Coordinated Entry System, Home for Good is using a three-phased approach to resolve homelessness. In its first year and a half, the program has focused on phase one, data collection. Annual Point in Time Counts supply critical data about the homeless populations throughout the County. In Carpinteria, Summerland, and Montecito, the homeless population includes 36 individuals, 47 percent of whom are chronically homeless. Home for Good’s second phase, getting individuals “document ready,” is well underway. Having paperwork in order will be necessary for the final phase, which is creation of housing and permanent supportive

housing services. The goals of Home for Good are ambitious, but staff members have already begun to see the results of their hard work and careful planning.
Wednesday Lunch Volunteers
Every Wednesday, a free lunch is served in the Veterans Memorial Building Meeting Room by a group of volunteers who bring much more than just hot food to the table. The meal itself provides a weekly opportunity for regular contact with friendly, trusted volunteers who can connect people in need to key services and resources. This volunteer group—has no official name or nonprofit affiliation—but its members are highly dedicated. They have patiently developed relationships with the people they serve, and these hard-earned relationships have opened doors to improved health and safety. Volunteers include Leah Wagner, Barbara and Sanderson Smith, Mike Carmel, Ruthie Tremmel, Rick Olmstead, Mike Lee, Susanna Green, Gina Cummings, Lisa Rader, and Jaime Whitezman. “None of us does this for acknowledgement,” said Wagner. “We’re all just doing what our hearts are calling us to do.” Volunteers home-cook and deliver meals that range from lasagne to burritos, and once a month Fosters Freeze donates lunch. Each week, a table in the meeting room is set up with donated items available to anyone who needs them: razors, wet wipes, soap, lotion, etc. For people who are hungry but aren’t comfortable attending, volunteers often deliver plates of hot food throughout the community. County health workers attend the lunch periodically to offer medical and counseling services to the five to ten individuals who regularly participate, and Home for Good also helps to meet needs identified at the weekly gathering. “Sometimes what’s needed is as simple as a toothbrush; sometimes it’s paperwork to get housing,” says Wagner. “We feel very strongly about loving these people and helping them without enabling them.”

From December 1 st through May 31st the City beach at the base of Casitas Pier, extending 750 feet east and west, is closed by City Ordinance to all people and animals. Harbor seals can be viewed from the Carpinteria Seal Rookery bluff top, which can be accessed from the Coastal Vista Trail, the Carpinteria Bluffs or Dump Road. The beach closure allows harbor seals (phoca vitulina richardsii) to birth and nourish their pups, which mature between four and seven years and have a lifespan of 30 to 40 years. The Federal Marine Mammal Protection Act prohibits disturbances of harbor seals, especially during the birthing season. The entrance to the beach is posted for the closure. Those who disregarded the signs and harass the seals can be fined as much as $10,000. If a harbor seal or pup is on the beach outside of the rookery area, stay away and do not walk between the pup and the ocean. Seal pups are left on the beach while their mothers forage for fish, squid, clams and shellfish; they will return to care for the pup but are extremely shy if humans or animals are close by. If you would like to volunteer for Carpinteria Seal Watch, please call (805) 684-2247, or email: email@example.com. There are time slots for as little as two-hours. Seal Watch Volunteers inform the public about the seals and the laws that protect the seals. Volunteers attempt to divert human and dog encroachments as to prevent or minimize the intensity of the disturbances. Volunteers also assist local and federal protection efforts and collect data about seal behavior and seal disturbances. If you observe a hurt or injured mammal and you believe it is an emergency for the animal to be treated, call the Marine Mammal center at (805) 687-3255 if the mammal is north of Rincon. If the mammal is south of Rincon call Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute at (805) 567-1505 or visit cimwi.org. Carpinteria Harbor Seal Rookery brochures are available at City Hall.
Skate Park Moves Forward, Seeks Funding
The Parks Department is moving forward on the proposed skate park to be located adjacent to City Hall at 5775 Carpinteria Avenue. The night lighting design concept has been completed and the Project Application has been filed with the City’s Community Development Department for review and processing. This project is in partnership with the Carpinteria Skate Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, that is currently seeking donations to fund construction of the skate park. To make a donation, please visit gofundme.com/carpskatepark/ donate
Carpinteria is moving towards cleaner energy. On August 26, the Carpinteria City Council voted to join Monterey Bay Community Power, a Community Choice Energy (CCE) provider. Also called community choice aggregation, CCE programs purchase renewable and carbon free energy on behalf of their customers. Transmission is still handled by the existing investor owned utility, in our case Southern California Edison. Customer enrollment will begin in 2021 and is automatic, but customers can opt-out if they prefer. As customers, most people will see very little difference upon enrollment other than two line items on their bill from Southern California Edison, one for delivery and one for generation. For more information about how community choice energy works and programs that will be available to customers once launched in Carpinteria, visit mbcommunitypower.org/.
City to Receive $1 Million in Transportation Circulation Improvement Funding
The City of Carpinteria was recently granted $1M of Circulation Improvement Funding by the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. The funding provides for transportation circulation improvements which may include sidewalks, bikeways, curb ramp upgrades to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, and traffic control devices. The City’s Transportation Committee will be identifying projects at an upcoming meeting where members of the public will have an opportunity to participate in identifying the specific projects to receive funding. The meeting schedule will be posted on the City’s website at carpinteria.ca.us/, under What’s New? City Public Meeting Agendas prior to the meeting.

HOST Season Wrap Up
The cool spring weather brought a slow start to the City’s HOST Program. But it didn’t take long for the Kiosk at the Seal Fountain to be buzzing with both new and returning visitors. Several families have been visiting Carpinteria for decades, always bringing the next generation to our community. The HOSTs greeted more than 3,200 visitors, from 39 states, and twelve countries wrapping up a very successful season. Every weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day, HOSTs volunteer their time at the downtown Visitor Center greeting visitors, answering questions about the Carpinteria Valley and providing information on activities that appeal to a variety of interests.

City Projects Completed, Planned, and Underway
2019 Completed Capital Improvement Projects
The Carpinteria Avenue Pedestrian Safety Improvements Project, the 2019 Pavement Maintenance Project, and the Carpinteria Avenue and Elm Avenue Bus Shelter Relocation Project were successfully completed this year.
Pedestrian Crossing Safety Improvements Planned
The Pedestrian Crossing Safety Improvements Project consists of constructing sidewalk infill, ADA facilities, curb and gutter along Bailard Avenue at its intersection with Carpinteria Avenue and with Via Real, and also constructing curb extensions and installing a crosswalk at Linden Avenue and Dorrance Way. The project is currently in the design phase and construction is expected to begin in April 2020.
Pavement Rehabilitation Project
The upcoming Pavement Rehabilitation Project will include pavement rehabilitation and upgrading curb ramps as needed for compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. The project will also incorporate technologies and material recycling that lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the cost of pavement maintenance through material choice and construction methods. The streets selected for treatment and approved by City Council include Carpinteria Avenue from Santa Ynez to Sandyland Cove Road, Nipomo Drive from Linden Avenue to Tomol Drive, and Eighth Street from Elm Avenue to Maple Avenue. The project is currently in the design phase and it is expected that construction will begin in February 2020.
City Hall Renovation Project Work Progressing
The City Hall renovation project is well underway. Construction of electrical, plumbing, and mechanical improvements are substantially complete. Structural repairs and installation of the fire sprinkler system are in progress. Improvements still to come include interior structural improvements, office space construction, and exterior landscaping. The project is anticipated to be completed in January 2020.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training at City Hall
To kick off Emergency Preparedness Month, the City held a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training at City Hall in September. Participants from the community learned about disaster preparedness, basic first aid, and team organization. Thanks to the Carpinteria Summerland Fire Protection District everyone received fire safety and fire extinguisher training. At the end of the twenty hour course, graduates participated in a simulated disaster drill, putting to work their new knowledge and skills. The CERT program is designed to help communities prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters through training and planning. With training and information, individuals and community groups can be prepared to serve as a crucial resource capable of performing many of the emergency functions needed right after a disaster. If you would like to learn more about the Carpinteria CERT program and future classes, contact Mimi Audelo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 755-4401.
Being Prepared for an Emergency is a Way of Life
Whether it is a winter storm, earthquake, or the latest Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event, being prepared will help you get through the situation. Listed are a few simple steps and some resources to get you started: • Be aware of your surroundings. Know the risks in your area at home, work, or school. • Make an emergency plan for you and your household. Your plan should include what to do if you are at home when the emergency starts and if you are away. • Include important phone numbers in your plan. Add an out of area contact person. • Build an emergency kit for your home, work, and vehicle. • Sign up for SB County emergency alerts at ReadySBC.org as well as alerts from your power company such as SCE.com It’s never too early to get prepared. There are a lot of resources available to help in your preparedness journey that include the Disaster Ready Resources listed below. And don’t forget to check your emergency kits yearly.

City Beach Prepares for Winter Storms
Each year in November, the City of Carpinteria readies for winter storms along the beachfront by building a sand berm to protect ocean front improvements from wave and flood damage. The berm is made of locally sourced beach sand and provides some protection in the event of a significant ocean wave event. The winter protection berm is scheduled to be constructed beginning in Late November and takes about 5 days to complete. The City reminds everyone that it is important for safety to stay off of the beach and away from the tractor when the berm is being constructed. The project is funded by the beach front homeowners and the City of Carpinteria. For information contact Matt Roberts (805) 755-4449 or email email@example.com
Sandbags Available at City Hall
It’s a good time to begin preparing your home and property for the potential wet weather coming this winter. The City of Carpinteria is offering free sandbags to help residents prepare. Residents can fill up to 20 sandbags per household while supplies last at the Public Works Yard located at 5775 Carpinteria Avenue. The hours are Monday - Thursday, 7:30am to 4pm and Fridays from 7:30am - 3pm. When filling sandbags, fill them only half way, so they are not too heavy and will stack properly. Sand bags can help protect your property during storm events. The City of Carpinteria believes that early storm preparation is critical to helping you deal successfully with possible flooding from potential wet weather this winter. If it starts to flood many resources you will need will already be stressed or unavailable. Traveling to get sandbags during a storm may be problematic. So please take advantage of this opportunity to prepare your home and property. For more information about sandbags, please contact Robert Howard, Public Works Supervisor at (805) 755-4443.
READY -- Advisory storm alert. Given enough time (72-48 hours in advance), the Ready advisory will alert the community about the incoming storm. SET -- Prepare to evacuate. The Set message is an evacuation warning that will go out to the affected areas (48-24 hours in advance) asking residents to prepare to leave. GO – Evacuate. If the storm remains a threat, the Go evacuation order will tell residents to leave now, less than 24 hours before the predicted rain event. If you need assistance evacuating, don’t wait. It may be difficult to reach you once the rain starts. Also, there may be situations when there is not enough time for notifications. Don’t wait for an evacuation order; leave the area if you feel unsafe. To sign up for alerts, go to readysbc.org.
CITY MANAGER MESSAGE: continued from page 1
after the last census, a reflection of what the City concluded was a significant undercount of residents. We will need your ideas and help in order to identify the best ways to ensure that everyone gets counted. In the weeks and months to come before the April 1, 2020 census begins, you’ll be hearing much more about the census and will have the opportunity to help. We hope you’ll join this effort to ensure Carpinterians get needed resources and representation. In the meantime, information about Census 2020 can be found at these California and County of Santa Barbara websites: census.ca.gov and santabarbaracountycensus.org.
