Goleta Planning Commission to Hold Public Hearing on Green Building Program

City's consultants will present an update on steps taken so far

The City of Goleta will hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. Thursday for the Planning Commission to receive a report on the proposed Green Building Program.

Staff and the city’s consultant from Global Green USA will present information on the steps taken to date to craft a program based on input received from the city’s advisory group, known as the Green Ribbon Committee, and feedback received at two joint City Council/Planning Commission workshops held in March and June.

“We’ve finalized the Green Building Program approach to focus on voluntary aspects of the program for most projects,” said Pat Saley, acting director of Planning and Environmental Services. “We look forward to presenting the proposed program at this Planning Commission meeting for a recommendation to the City Council in October.”

The agenda and staff report for the meeting will be available on the city’s website, and the meeting will be broadcast on Channel 19 and available for streaming through the city’s website.

For more information, contact public information officer Valerie Kushnerov at 805.961.7507 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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!
