City Hosting ‘I Love Goleta’ Community Workshop, Free Dinner

Source: Valerie Kushnerov for the City of Goleta

There is no doubt that things thrive when they are loved, and cities are no different. Learn about what makes a city lovable and the emotional connections that people have with the places they live — and why that makes a difference.

Peter Kageyama, author of the internationally renowned book For the Love of Cities, is coming to Goleta to share his insights on the effect of love on a community. He will work with us to identify, improve and maximize the affection for and identity of Goleta.

An “I Love Goleta” community workshop and free dinner will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 7 at the Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave. in Goleta.

Reserve your space by clicking here, calling 805.961.7500 or by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

This is a hands-on opportunity for discussion about what people love about Goleta, creative thinking on what this means to our community, and how this emotional engagement can make a difference. This is a free event, sponsored by the City of Goleta that you do not want to miss.

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!
