1. The Public is Invited to the CliffsNotes Version of Goleta’s Zoning Ordinance Revision (with Q & A and Refreshments)   

Goleta’s Zoning Revision will affect every development and property where you live and work and all aroundThe Goodland Coalition, is hosting a briefing for the public at the Goleta Library at 6:30 PM on Thursday, April 25.

Take this quiz to decide if knowing about Goleta’s future zoning is of interest to you:

– Do you care if your next door neighbor in your residential neighborhood applies to re-zone his property to open a drive-thru hamburger stand? 

– Do you care if your ability to park your boat or RV near your house is reduced? 

– Do you care if the business next to yours installs a large, glaring movable sign that flashes night and day? 

– Do you care if development occurs within a few feet of a creek or environmentally sensitive area? 

– Do you care if someone builds a shopping center or a hotel before you have a chance to comment on much traffic it is likely to generate, or how it blocks mountain views, or what the building will look like? 

– Do you care if the buyer of the house next door tears it down and builds a replacement three-story house within 3 feet of your house? 

If you answer YES to at least 2 of the 6 questions above, you probably want to learn more about Goleta’s proposed zoning code changes. There is still time for your voice to be heard before the new code is approved by City Council. Here’s how:

Come to the Community meeting specifically on Goleta’s New Zoning Ordinance at 6:30PM, Thursday, April 25, 2019 at the Goleta Library. “Superstars” from the City of Goleta will be there to provide the “CliffsNotes” version and answer your questions.
