Goleta Mayor Appoints Katie Maynard to Serve on Planning Commission

Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte has appointed Katie Maynard to serve as her Planning Commission representative.

The position became available when Perotte’s former planning commissioner, Meg West, resigned to serve on the Board of Directors for the Goleta Water District.

“Ms. Maynard’s experience will be very beneficial as proposed projects come before the commission,” Perotte said. “It’s wonderful to have someone with her background working in this role, and I am grateful she is willing to serve our community in this way.”

Maynard is a sustainability coordinator at UCSB in the Geography Department. Her responsibility is to identify ways that the campus can reduce its environmental impact and collaborate with the community to ensure a healthy environment.

She has lived in Santa Barbara County for the last 13 years and in Goleta for the last two.

Planning Commission terms coincide with the terms of the appointing council member.

— 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.

Thanks for asking!
