Power ShutOffs Only in Noleta?
NOLETA? An unofficial name of a densely populated area, mostly between #101 and the ocean, but goes north up the hill, too. Have these Edison power shutoffs have been primarily in Noleta? Why not other high wind areas that have a more recent history of big fires.
San Marcos High School, Turnpike Shopping Center, Lane Farms, Page Youth Center, Girls, Inc., and Hope Ranch Annex are in Noleta. All of Turnpike is in Noleta, as is Tucker’s Grove Park. It includes 93110, 93111, and 93105, and the address is Santa Barbara; Goleta on the west, Hope Ranch and Santa Barbara on the east at the #154/#101, the Pacific Ocean on the south (at More Mesa), and north of the 101 for miles, up along #154.
The Sheriff is the law, no local police. CHP handles traffic/parking issues. For Noleta residents, does this work well?
Governance is strictly Board of Supervisors, no City Council. When good reporters report on news in the area they say, “near Santa Barbara” or “near Goleta”. Noleta has been targeted for these power failures. The one Supervisor for Noleta is 2nd District: Greg Hart, Vice Chair, 805.568.2919, [email protected].
