Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors: Do not pass the amendments proposed on the Special Events Ordinance.

There has been no economic impact study on the P&D proposal, which is critical, due to the substantial effect on jobs, livelihoods, and businesses which could have incomes reduced by up to half. The amendments say nothing about the critical issues of public nuisances (impacts) such as noise, traffic, parking, lighting, and dust. We urge the Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors to not pass the amendments proposed by the Planning Commission on the Special Events Ordinance. Please delay consideration of these amendments until a second option, the Good Neighbor Special Events Ordinance, has been studied.
