Goleta Seeks Community Help Designing a Future Civic Center

The City of Goleta wants your help envisioning and designing a future Goleta Civic Center.

Be part of this design charrette to imagine how this property could be transformed into a Civic Center with a new Goleta City Hall at the location of the current Goleta Valley Community Center.

Drop in either day: On both Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21, an open house will be held from 10 a.m. to noon followed by a presentation from 3 to 4:30 p.m., at 5679 Hollister Ave. in Goleta.

The events are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. Spanish translation will be available.

Watch as architects draw your ideas in real time!

A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, architects and others collaborate on a vision for development. It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving input to the designers and getting immediate feedback often in the form of drawings, sketches or other exhibits.

For more information, contact Claudia Dato at [email protected] or 805.961.7554.

— 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!
