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.

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.
