SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Construction on a Bristol Farms gourmet store at La Cumbre Plaza hit a roadblock.

Nearby business workers said they noticed construction workers leaving and wondered what was going on.

The building appears to be in need of a roof, entrance and more.

A security guard has been hired to watch the construction site.

Santa Barbara Project Planner Marck Aguilar said the city is waiting for the owners of the store to resubmit revised plans to manage storm water issues.

"They went a little bit beyond the scope of permitted work, so we went and checked on it." said Aguilar

Aguilar said their work triggered the need for additional storm water management work.

The company that also owns Lazy Acres had planned to open the new Bristol Farms in March or April of 2020.

Aguilar said the city hopes to help the company get back on track.
