Brainstorming New Locations for the Saturday Farmers’ Market

••• “The process to find a possible new location for the Saturday Farmers’ Market in Santa Barbara is not into crunch time just yet but at a special City Hall meeting efforts began to look at sites that could work. […] Early next year the city is expected to have a short list for new Farmers’ Market sites. […] Some of the suggestions including using ‘T-intersection’ concepts. For example, De La Guerra and two blocks of State Street. Another site was Parking lot 11 behind Institution Ale. There more than a dozen other locations suggested as well.” —KEYT

••• “Santa Barbara County supervisors agreed to increase the cost of annual passes and other fees for county parks Tuesday […] Supervisors voted to increase the annual vehicle permit fee, for county residents, to $100 from $90 for Jalama Beach and Lake Cachuma parks, and also increase annual Cachuma canoe/kayak fees to $40. The county won’t charge fees for the Cachuma pool except on holidays and Fridays through Sundays, since otherwise it’s not worth the money to staff a person collecting fees.” —Noozhawk
