Casting Aspersions Anonymously Is Hardly a Brave Stance

We and, I am sure, many others just received an unsigned letter from someone listing a range of grievances against the new Miramar Hotel design and suggesting that everyone contact Michele Gibbs, evidently the county planner for the project. The letter included an already addressed envelope to her with a form listing these grievances for the receiver to check off. Amusingly, it did ask for each person to sign their letter.

This is reminiscent of the agony the community has experienced at the hands of a few rather duplicitous naysayers for a number of worthwhile development projects in Montecito and the surrounding areas.

Rather than anonymously attempting to aggravate the approval process for development of any type in this community, those with objections should identify themselves and write a letter to newspaper editors in the hope that it will be printed in the interest of free speech.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
