SB Trapeze Co.

You no longer have to join a circus to become skilled on the flying trapeze. Schools focused on the art now operate across the country, and there’s one on the Central Coast—the Santa Barbara Trapeze Company opened last fall.

In this episode of Issues & Ideas, we discuss affordability and housing issues on the Central Coast. Greta Mart speaks with journalist Kate Cimini of the Salinas Californian newspaper and CalMatters about her reporting on Salinas farmworking families. In another segment, we learn more about San Luis Obispo County’s YIMBY movement. YIMBY means 'Yes In My Backyard,' and the grassroots group advocates for creating more affordable housing stock in established city neighborhoods.
