A small, quaint inn in the downtown area sounds like a great idea for locals and travelers alike. I believe the proposed architecture is charming, has that coastal feel and is Carpinteria through and through.
Having been a resident (and business owner) here for five years, I’m glad I did my homework and learned all the facts behind this project. It’s easy to say “no” to something you don’t know much about. It’s clear the developers are all local and have a passion for keeping Carpinteria the special community it is.
Let’s be open-minded about this opportunity. Our businesses have struggled over the years with the fires, floods and now Covid-19, we need the helping hand now more than ever.
