Goleta Trails Focus of Public Workshop

Residents are invited to weigh in on revised trail recommendations for the county

The Santa Barbara County Trails Council is sponsoring a public workshop from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Goleta Valley Community Center.

The intent is to discuss existing, proposed and possible future trail concepts as they relate to the county’s effort at updating the Goleta Valley Community Plan, to update residents on trail improvement efforts in the city of Goleta and receive input from interested residents on revised trail recommendations for the county.

The Trails Council is a nonprofit, broad-based trails advocacy group that has worked cooperatively since 1969 with local, state and federal agencies for planning, maintenance and construction of existing and new trails. The Trails Council is familiar with the adopted 1995 Goleta Trails Plan, and is ready and willing to assist the county in trail planning updates. 

It is the Trails Council hope that by gathering information from public workshops that the county can utilize this information to expand and improve the current trails system.

The Trails Council also wishes to keep residents informed of trail improvement activities in the city of Goleta and to facilitate coordination between the city and the county on trails planning, construction and maintenance. 

The meeting will be informative and provide trail history, maps and status updates of the major 1995 trail planning proposals. The Goleta Valley Community Center is located at 5679 Hollister Ave. in 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!
