••• The Rosewood Miramar Beach resort is offering day passes ($95 for adults, $45 for kids), which buys you access to the two pools, poolside food and beverage service (at extra cost, of course), access to the ice cream shop, bocce ball (“subject to availability”), and wi-fi. For $500, you get the equivalent of four day passes and a poolside cabana with TV, fruit bowl, and fridge full of bottled water. Only “adult cabanas”—at the “adult-friendly” pool, which I assume means no kids—are available on weekends.
••• At 6 p.m. on November 12, the city’s Parks & Recreation Department is holding an online meeting about the plans for renovating Ortega Park. “Meeting goals: Provide an update on project plans and next steps to advance through final design and construction drawings; discuss opportunities to incorporate cultural art and murals into public spaces, such as park entries and the family plaza.”
••• From Caltrans: “A project to resurface State Route 150 from the US Highway 101 Interchange in Carpinteria to the Ventura County line will begin on Monday, November 2. This grinding and paving operation will occur each day next week from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. with motorists and bicyclists encountering one-way reversing traffic control with a pilot vehicle in various locations from US 101 to the Ventura County line. Motorists can expect delays not to exceed 10 minutes.” No word on when it’ll be done.
••• From the Montecito Fire Department: “The Montecito Fire Protection District has partnered with the Carpinteria Summerland Fire Protection District on a Fire Station Location Study. The purpose of this study is to validate community risks identified in previous studies, identify mitigations to those risks, and to determine if a mutually beneficial location can be identified between the two Fire Districts for a single fire station location.” They’re seeking public input at an online workshop at 6 p.m. on November 10. The meeting ID is 2679880107.
