Public Meetings Begin This Week on Highway 101 South Coast HOV Project

Caltrans staff will provide updates and be available to answer questions

The public is invited to attend a public information meeting/open house to learn more about the South Coast HOV Project on Highway 101.

The meetings will be held in the following locations:

» Tuesday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Montecito Country Club, 920 Summit Road in Santa Barbara

» Wednesday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria at Carpinteria High School, 4810 Foothill Road

» Thursday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at QAD Inc., 100 Innovation Place in Santa Barbara

A brief presentation will be made at 6:30 p.m. each evening. The public may choose to attend one of the three meetings as the content will be the same at each meeting.

Caltrans will hold the meetings to provide the public with an update on the project, explain the processes used to develop technical studies and present preliminary findings about where sound walls have been considered. Caltrans staff will be available to answer questions from the public.

The release of the draft environmental document and the public comment period is expected to occur in early 2012.

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!
