City of Goleta Seeking Input on Wildfire Plan, Butterfly Habitat

A public workshop will be held Wednesday

The City of Goleta will be seeking input this week at the first public workshop on the Wildland Fire Plan and the Monarch Butterfly Habitat Management Plan.

“Our sense of place is strongly influenced by the scenic beauty of Goleta’s open spaces, foothills and ocean resources,” said Anne Wells, advance planning manager for the City of Goleta. “This workshop is an opportunity to influence land management techniques that take into consideration all community interests.”

Are you concerned about wildfires? Do you know that Monarch butterflies live in our eucalyptus groves during the winter months? Are you aware that fire planning helps us protect our natural resources?

These are some of the questions that will be asked and discussed during the workshop, at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23 at the Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave. in Goleta. We encourage those who live, work and play in Goleta to join in this dialogue. Spanish translation will be available.

For more information, call senior planner Dan Nemechek at 805.961.7544.

— Valerie Kushnerov is a public information officer for the City of Goleta.

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!
