Goleta to Host Public Workshop on Old Town Parking

The city is conducting a study to improve parking on and near Hollister Avenue

The City of Goleta will host a public workshop at 7 p.m. July 21 at the Goleta Valley Community Center to encourage community input regarding parking in Goleta Old Town.

As part of Old Town redevelopment efforts, the City of Goleta is conducting a parking study in Old Town to assess opportunities and constraints with the overall goal to improve parking for businesses on and near Hollister Avenue.

“This study is very much needed for Old Town given the ongoing parking issues that have plagued the Hollister Avenue corridor there for many years,” said Steve Wagner, community services director. “It will segue directly into the overall Hollister Avenue Redesign Project that is currently in the initial planning stages.”

As part of the public outreach effort, the city prepared an anonymous survey to gain needed additional input to help its in its parking assessment as effectively as possible. Click here to view it in English, or click here to view it in Spanish.

The survey and a workshop flier were mailed to more than 1,100 business owners, property owners and residents in Old Town. The flier was mailed to an additional 1,250 business owners, property owners and residents in the greater Old Town area.

All interested people are invited to attend. Spanish translation will be available.

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.
