Living with Lizards

“The Western fence lizard is the most common reptile in Malibu. It is quite happy to take advantage of garden features like rocks and fences. Those fantastically long toes and claws on the hind feet enable the fence lizard to almost effortlessly climb vertical surfaces like tree trunks.

Fence lizards are beneficial garden residents. They feast on creatures humans regard as pests, including mosquitos, ticks, scorpions, centipedes, beetles and spiders. Fence lizards are, in turn, a key food source for everything from hawks and roadrunners, to gopher snakes and larger lizards.”

The Malibu Post

6/10/2024
The coloring of the fence lizard looks similar to that of lizards crawling around here in Vista during springtime.

Unfortunately, when lizards accidentally get poisoned… that can also kill those animals in the food chain that eat lizards… contaminating the balance of nature.

More Parking Spaces on Main Street?

Vista City Council is considering adding additional parking to Main Street and E. Broadway and making parts of them one-way streets. That’s most of Main Street and the road in front of the Broadway Theater on E. Broadway. 70 additional parking places might be added.

So, this sounds pretty great, right? Ever since the big dirt parking lot was replaced with the Rylan apartments and businesses, Main Street has needed more parking. When Main Street was busy, there were up to 2 full rows a block long of cars parked in that dirt lot.

Of course, the devil is in the details. Remember… did it take like a year or something to finish the road on Santa Fe? How did that impact the businesses there? Was nobody even out there working a lot of that time? Did that put any small businesses there under?

In this video, it looks like an engineer is pointing at blocking all of Main Street at Citrus. But, does he actually mean just blocking off half of the street there? And… how many of those 70 new parking spaces will Main Street be getting?

Is there some software program that will allow the engineer to draw his vision of Main Street parking? It would be easier to know if this is something everybody really wants if we can see it first. Would it look something like the parking on Coast Hwy in Encinitas?

The City of Vista is requesting community feedback on this proposed plan. Click on City Council members at the City of Vista website. Email address for each member is at the bottom of each member’s page.

Suggestion
We tried to park in one of the newer lots off of Main Street one evening. There was only one space available and we couldn’t get into it. Then, we had a difficult time getting out of the lot. It felt dangerous since we had to back up onto the street.

These parking spaces would be MUCH easier to get into if they were slanted. And, could an exit be added to these parking lots? Currently, there is only one entrance to get in or out. And it would be helpful for the security of women and children if parking spaces are not too narrow.


Just wondering…
The end of the athletic field near Main Street always seems to be empty. Maybe the side of that field nearest Main Street could be converted to a couple of rows of parking? 2 rows parallel to Citrus?

What is the future of the historic
AVO Theatre
in Downtown Vista?
The Vista Press

6/11/2024
Just prior to the building of the Rylan, the Broadway Theater and the Chamber of Commerce moved off of Main Street. Then a large parking lot was built across the street from the Broadway Theater. But, even that large parking lot is completely filled up on busy evenings.

Some businesses in Vista Village appear to be coping with the lack of parking by staggering their open hours. Some open very early and close by mid afternoon. Others open late morning and close after dark.

If the population is shrinking and there is more housing available… why aren’t home prices going down?

Between January 2020 and January 2023
did the population of California
decrease by 709,000
while the number of housing units
increased by 378,000?

Are large corporations buying up homes and bidding up prices? Are they outbidding potential residents? Does that explain the increase in home prices? So, will building more homes actually even make a dent in home prices?

Did the Federal Reserve give rich entities low interest money? Was this money used to buy up assets like homes? Can the average would-be homeowner compete in that kind of a rigged market?

Where is this need for housing expected to come from? Isn’t fertility declining? Why do we have to build all these new homes? And give up our rural spaces? Or congest our prime Main Street area with traffic and parking? Who voted for that?

This super bloom is pretty dangerous
Invasive mustard is fuel for the next fire
Los Angeles Times


Non-Native Grasses and Weeds

“The numbers explain why brush fires slowly spread in comparison to grass/weed fires. Grass/weed fires can kill you. Look at it this way (and there are no absolutes in nature): when a field is in annual grass and mustard, and the ignition time per plant is almost instantaneous, you’ll get what appears to be area ignition.

On the Las Pilitas fire we had an area by Santa Margarita Lake where the fire moved through miles of grass in a few minutes. You can’t outrun something that basically blows up.

Las Pilitas Nursery


6/2/2024
Can we get rid of grasses/weeds permanently by weeding them or weedwacking them before they go to seed? Can we keep weed seeds from sprouting by spreading organic pre-emergent on the ground at just the right time?

Weeding worked for me after the “master” gardener for our HOA spread mulch around my house one year. It took several years of me weeding in springtime to get rid of the forest of weeds that sprouted from that mulch. I think it may have been mulch from the dump.

Why California’s palm trees ‘explode into a giant torch’ each year

“If homeowners let years of dead palm fronds hang, this can be hazardous in wind and fire conditions. Homeowners are required to have these dead fronds removed, as is true for any dead branch or material on any type of tree or shrub.”

Nicholas Prange
Los Angeles Fire Department

Some years ago, our HOA removed palms from its slopes. That means we no longer need to pay each year for pruning dead fronds off of very tall palms. The HOA was advised to do this for fire safety by a California Natives Landscape Designer.
