Cold Spring School to Celebrate Trail Beautification Project

Vegetation has been cleared along Sycamore Canyon Road to make room for walking and biking

The Cold Spring School Safe Routes to School Program will celebrate the Trail Beautification Project along Sycamore Canyon Road from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Friday at the school, 2243 Sycamore Canyon Road in Montecito.

The project is made possible through a generous grant from Santa Barbara Beautiful.

Sycamore Canyon Road is the main route to school for Cold Spring School families. Unfortunately, this is a dangerous road for walking and biking because there is limited safe area along the roadside.

The Cold Spring School area along Sycamore Canyon Road was once overgrown with haphazard vegetation. It is now cleared and landscaped, with space for parking and walking.

This beautification project is a model for the Montecito Walk to School Trail Program — every property owner can clear roadside vegetation to make trail space for walking and biking.

More road improvements will soon happen to smoothly connect the school trail to the adjacent Lotusland trail.

— Dr. Bryan McCabe is the superintendent/principal of Cold Spring School.

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!
