Goleta Launches Zoning Ordinance Project Website, Notification List

Source: Valerie Kushnerov for the City of Goleta

The City of Goleta is currently engaged in a Zoning Ordinance Project that will replace outdated rules to create Goleta’s first city-specific regulations.

The city has launched a website to provide information throughout the process at GoletaZoning.com and is encouraging interested parties to register for the email updates by clicking here.

The Zoning Code is an influential regulatory document that will shape future growth in Goleta; it is a collection of ordinances that guides city planning and development. It will build upon the foundation of the General Plan and other prior planning endeavors and provide a basis for approving applications for new construction, as well as alterations and additions to existing buildings.

The City of Goleta inherited its current zoning code from Santa Barbara County. Written more than 30 years ago, this code does not reflect the goals and character put forth in Goleta’s General Plan.

The city’s first Zoning Ordinance Project will be a yearlong process in which citizens will have many opportunities to express their opinions during this collaborative process. These will include educational workshops, community meetings and public hearings.

All residents, business owners and stakeholders within Goleta are encouraged to take part in shaping the future of the community.

— Valerie Kushnerov is a public information officer for the City of 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.
