New Summerland Suburb
We were surprised on a June 1 flight to notice what seems to be a new "suburb" growing on the Summerland bluff. It was below the southbound 101 Summerland exit and above the railroad tracks. There seem to be three main dwelling areas, with the one on the left (1st pic) apparently built right into the bluff with a drain system. The 2nd pic shows an area on the right, and the 3rd pic shows all 3 from beach to freeway and possibly other areas in railroad culverts. Some questions come up for me. Could any of this cause erosion or public health problems? What more can be done to provide affordable housing for workers, and safe shelter for the homeless? Does anyone on Edhat have ideas or answers?
