In a state where older buildings are often treated as if they were disposable stage sets, Santa Barbara is different. Over the last decade, more than 50 historic structures--ranging from the world-famous mission to a pair of bandstands, fig trees and watering troughs--have been declared official municipal landmarks, making it illegal to alter or demolish them. These days, however, a proposal to add the seaside Los Banos del Mar Pool to the roster is making waves.

Fess Parker's latest waterfront hotel proposal has been approved after years of squabbling and redesign. The hotel will rise from a three-acre Cabrillo Boulevard lot. Construction could start in a year, the 76-year-old former "Davy Crockett" star said. The city approved Parker's plans for a 150-room hotel in 1993, giving him until 2007 to build it next to his other waterfront property, Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort Santa Barbara.

The state Supreme Court, warning that environmental laws should not be used to needlessly delay development, on Monday upheld local approval of a proposed 400-unit Santa Barbara beachfront hotel fought by anti-growth forces for seven years. The justices ruled unanimously that county officials, in preparing environmental impact reports, had properly turned down alternative sites suggested by a group opposing the project.

For half a century, since they arrived at the Monastery of the Poor Clares as naive young women, the two nuns have lived sheltered lives as part of the Catholic Church's most austere order--cloistered inside a walled compound near the old Santa Barbara Mission. Like the 13 other nuns with whom they share their days, Sister Mary Grace and Mother Mary Clare go barefoot and seldom speak, instead spending seven hours a day in meditation--awakened in their spartan cells even at midnight and 4 a.m.

If you wanted to build something big and commercial in Santa Barbara, for years you could borrow from Hollywood producers to describe the experience: Development hell. Odd words for one of the most beautiful and pristine coastal counties in the state. But then, that's how environmentalists, activists, "slow-growth" politicians, and voters passionate about Santa Barbara kept it that way. They tortured developers with public hearings and court battles and even ballot referendums.

A precedent-setting agreement between the UC Santa Barbara campus and its neighbors may help establish a pattern of future "town and gown" relations for campuses that are located in environmentally sensitive communities.
