Everyone was on their best behavior, a fact subtly referenced by Chumash attorney Sam Cohen who, after being handed a laser pointer, said, "Everyone has been so helpful, thank you. For the most part, everyone emphasized future goals rather than past problems.

That said, Cohen started the meeting by walking through points of a draft agreement the tribe said they presented to former CEO Chandra Waller in 2011.
...
It included a limited waiver of sovereign immunity so that the county could enforce the deal in federal or state court, Cohen said.
...
As for Camp 4, Cohen said the plan is to build 143 houses, a health clinic, a wastewater treatment plant, and an administration room used solely by tribal members.

Sam Cohen, the Chumash's government affairs officer, said that although the tribe appreciated Lavagnino's letter, it will not change the tribe's current plans. "The only thing we'd prefer is for Supervisor Lavagnino to support the legislation as written," Cohen said.

...
I am all for the Chumash, but I'm also even more for the fate of the beautiful, 1400 acre Camp 4 property and I do not trust Armenta, Cohen, or the Santa Ynez Tribe with stewardship over this parcel. Casinos here we come if they get the fee-to-trust. I am open to correction, but I believe the official number of Native Americans in the Santa Ynez Tribe is under 170. What Steve Lavagnino has done here is cover his a** with the Chumash, hoping for more campaign $ help in the future, especially when he witnesses how savagely the Tribe has turned on their erstwhile toady, Carbajal.

One day after receiving the Tuesday's bad news that the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors would not be engaging in a government-to-government dialogue with the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, the tribe's government affairs officer Sam Cohen reached out to Glenn Russell, the head of the county planning department, to see what options were on the table.
...
Cohen confirmed that outreach but did not seem overly optimistic about the opportunity, explaining that he was simply following the direction given by the board. In an email to The Santa Barbara Independent, Cohen said he is "not sure what realistic options exist" but that it was "still worth a staff meeting."
...
Cohen has also pointed out that Camp 4 is a mere 1.6 miles from the existing 127-acre reservation, not very far away, at least in the eyes of the feds.
Another lingering question for many in the valley is that if Camp 4 is annexed and developed into the 143 homes that the tribe keeps promising for housing its members, what might happen to the existing residential part of the reservation, which surrounds the Chumash Casino and Resort along Highway 246? Might that become a new resort development once all of the housing is moved to Camp 4?
Cohen says that's a hollow worry, pledging that "all current land assignments on the existing Santa Ynez Indian Reservation shall continue to be maintained unchanged. He explained that the reservation lands are "highly constrained due to a variety of physical, social, and economic factors," most notably that most of the property is in a floodplain that's susceptible to flooding and drainage problems. Only about 26 acres, or 18 percent of the reservation, has residential capacity, Cohen explained, and another 16 acres, or 11 percent, has economic development possibilities. The remaining 99 acres, or 71 percent of the reservation, is consumed by creek corridors and steep slopes, which Cohen said would be "difficult to impossible to develop." The usable size totals about 50 acres, said Cohen, most of which is already developed.
He further explained that of the 136 tribal members and roughly 1,300 lineal descendants, only 17 percent have housing on tribal lands, hence the tribe's desire to develop Camp 4.
