Carbajal Announces First District Openings for County Boards, Commissions

Santa Barbara County Supervisor Salud Carbajal is seeking community members who live in the First District and are interested in serving on the following boards and commissions: Montecito Board of Architectural Review, Montecito Planning Commission, South County Board of Architectural Review and the Mosquito and Vector Management District of Santa Barbara County.

“Serving on a county board or commission is an excellent opportunity for area residents to become actively involved with local government by offering their insight and experience on important issues,” Carbajal said. “I encourage those with an interest in serving on one of these commissions to consider applying for one of these openings.”

The following is a brief description of the subject commissions:

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
