Group gets permit to turn historic downtown Santa Barbara hotel into Reagan center:
The hotel will be transformed into the new Reagan Ranch Center, which will focus on bringing features from the remote ranch, where President Ronald Reagan signed the largest tax cut in U.S. history, closer to people downtown. It also will operate as a public memorial to Mr. Reagan and his legacy.
It’s scheduled to open approximately one year from now. By which time, incidentally, Air Force One should be on display at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley.
