Public Workshop Planned on Design, Use of Park in Old Town Goleta

City seeks community input regarding four-acre parcel at Hollister and Kellogg avenues

The City of Goleta is looking for the community’s input on how to design and use the four-acre parcel of land purchased for a park in Old Town Goleta near the corner of Hollister and Kellogg avenues.

The first design workshop has been scheduled for Saturday, April 7. Participants are invited to meet at the corner of Hollister and Kellogg at 9 a.m. for a site tour, followed by a workshop at 10 a.m. at the Goleta Valley Community Center.

Activities for the kids and snacks will be provided, and Spanish translation will be available.

“We have a wonderful opportunity to make this park what the community wants, but we need to hear from those who will use it regularly,” Mayor Ed Easton said. “I hope that many of our residents, from the very youngest to the more seasoned veteran, will come out and give input on what will be a very special place in Old Town.”

Additional workshops will be held throughout the spring. Those who have questions or would like to provide input and are unable to attend can contact the City of Goleta at 805.961.7568 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

— 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!
