Goleta Council to Hold Public Hearing on Green Building Program

Presentation to council will include report on initiative's progress, feedback from pair of workshops

The Goleta City Council will revisit the city’s proposed Green Building Program on Tuesday with a public hearing on a report about the initiative.

Valerie Kushernov, Goleta’s public information officer, said the council will meet at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to receive a report on the program from staff and the city’s consultant from Global Green USA. She said the presentation will include information on the steps taken to develop a program based on input from the city’s advisory Green Ribbon Committee, as well as feedback received at two joint City Council-Planning Commission workshops in March and June.

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

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!
