Ventura County builders using explosives to carve out new developments should do a better job notifying residents of impending blasts and pay for damage assessments at nearby homes and businesses, Supervisor Linda Parks said Friday. Under county rules, builders are required to notify residents within a 1,000-foot radius of planned blasts. Parks says the radius should be 2,000 feet and that builders also should meet with residents before any blasts to answer questions.

Those types of blunders have helped shape Parretti's reputation as a consummate outsider.
