Hair and Nail Salons Can Reopen Outside

••• Montecito Trails Foundation took a photo of the new temporary Cold Spring Bridge at E. Mountain Drive.

••• Porch on Santa Claus Lane is having a moving sale starting this Friday at 10 a.m. Its new location in open in Summerland is expected to open sometime this summer.

••• Press release from the county: “In response to requests from personal care practitioners desiring to move some of their activities outdoors, Governor Newsom announced today that State of California guidelines have been modified to allow some personal care activities to occur in outside locations. Prior to the issuance of new guidelines, barbershops and hair salons were required by the State of California to remain closed. State law and regulations required that certain personal care services must occur within an indoor licensed setting. Other personal care services, such as nail salon services and massages, are also authorized by the State for re-opening outdoors. Piercing, tattoo and electrolysis services are still prohibited from re-opening at this time.”

••• Press release: “The Santa Barbara Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is conducting a 2020 Design Charrette to Reinvigorate, Reinvent, Reimagine, and Repurpose our Downtown with housing, energy, and life. The Charrette will consist of design teams of volunteer architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers, and other experts who will apply their talent and expertise to envision a future Downtown Santa Barbara.” The organization would like you to take this quick survey about the state of State Street.

••• There’s a substantial new house in the works on Olive Mill Road, across from the Dorinda Triangle. It presumably has to be that tall in order to meet new regulations for building in a flood zone.

••• On the agenda for Friday’s meeting of the county’s South Board of Architectural Review: “a 27-unit apartment complex along with associated site improvements including three covered carport structures, two trash enclosures, common open spaces areas, landscaping, paving, and hardscaping. The 27-apartment building would total 26,737 net square feet and be comprised of nine single story, first-floor flats and 18 two-story units comprising the 2nd and 3rd floors. Sixty standard sized parking spaces are proposed, including 27 covered spaces, 6 guest spaces, and two handicap accessible spaces. […] All avocado trees onsite are proposed for removal. Access would be provided off of Calle Real. […] The project site is on the corner of Patterson Avenue and Calle Real.”

••• Neat aerial photo from Caltrans of the 101’s Linden Avenue overcrossing and the Ogan Road roundabout in Carp.

••• Also from Caltrans: The agency is seeking public input on the Santa Ynez River Trail Alignment Study: “The project’s objective is to determine potential alignments for a multimodal trail [for bicyclists, pedestrians, and equestrians] to connect the cities of Buellton and Solvang. A public workshop was tentatively scheduled to occur in early April; however, the Covid-19 public health crisis necessitated the need to develop an alternative means to gather public input. A project story map with an embedded survey has been created and is available at this link. The site will be available for public input from July 15–August 14, 2020. […] In addition to this platform, additional comments may be emailed to Jared Carvalho at [email protected], mailed to SBCAG at 260 N. San Antonio Road, Suite B, Santa Barbara, CA 93110. The project team is also available to connect via telephone to discuss this project. Please call SBCAG at 805-961-8900, leave a message and your call will be returned in a timely manner. The study is being conducted through a partnership of SBCAG, the cities of Buellton and Solvang, and the County of Santa Barbara.”
