Goleta Residents Invited to Workshop on Strategies in Response to Climate Change

The city of Goleta invites the public to a workshop on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers to provide an overview of the Draft Coastal Hazards and Vulnerability Assessment results and related adaptation strategies. 

Goleta is preparing for climate change impacts and has identified coastal hazards as one of factors affecting the vulnerability of the City’s residents, infrastructure, coastal resources, public health and economy under a range of sea level rise scenarios.
The city is seeking community feedback on the draft findings and how potential strategies are best measured and evaluated.

There will be a presentation on initial vulnerabilities and a chance for the public to interact with city staff on how the findings can be best reported/documented and what specific measurements of vulnerability will help the City prepare for future climate impacts.
Understanding the implications of climate change will also highlight critical areas for collaboration and empower the community to become more resilient at the household, business and community levels.

This information will further serve the planning process for the development of the city's Local Coastal Program.

—Valerie Kushnerov is the City of Goleta's public information officer.

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!
