To Whom It May Concern:

The Ventura County thread has not had much activity in several months. It's almost a ghost forum.

I think making the sub-forum "Ventura County and Santa Barbara County", which are very closely related counties, it will stimulate or at least give a boost of life to that sub-forum.

When people scroll through the forums, they will see the title for both counties and that will draw people into that sub-forum to ask questions about Santa Barbara. In the past, people have been asking questions from Santa Barbara to Santa Maria in the CA forum, and some people have been started to post in the VC sub-forum asking about Santa Barbara.

There is approximately 1.3 mill population between both counties.

Santa Barbara is only 30 min from Ventura, Lompoc is only 30 min from Santa Barbara, and Santa Maria is only 30 min from Lompoc.

I think adding SLO County would be too much for the Ventura County sub-forum to handle and because SLO County is too far from Ventura County.

Please unite the two counties to spark life in that sub-forum.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my proposal,

the city

Both counties have long been known as either the South Coast or the Gold Coast.

I just think it would also add a more life to this sub-forum.

Before they made the VC forum, I suggested that they should instead make it a "tri-county" forum. Still think that makes more sense than just a Ventura County....

San Luis Obispo County related threads should remain in the general California forum. There are too many SLO county related threads. SB County doesn't have that many.
