Goleta Treats Locals to Parking Permits for Halloween

Halloween brings more than costumes and candy, the extra visitors to Isla Vista can cause parking problems for area residents.

Goleta city staff has worked collaboratively with local residents and law enforcement to ease the impacts by implementing a successful parking permit program.

In an effort to help alleviate the burden on affected neighborhoods, the City Council has approved a temporary parking permit program for the fourth consecutive year.

The parking restrictions are for the Goleta neighborhoods closest to Isla Vista: University 1 and University 2 neighborhoods, including the Cannon Green Condominium complex.

The boundaries are: Cannon Green Drive to the west, Hollister Avenue to the north, Storke Road to the east, and Whittier Drive to the south. View the map at

Each household in the affected area will receive two permits in the mail by Oct. 23.

Permits will be needed for vehicles parked on the streets in this area from 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 to 7 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, and 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 to 7 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 29.

Parking restrictions are only in effect during the evening and overnight hours; daytime events at Girsh Park should not be impacted. Vehicles without permits will be cited and/or towed at the owner’s expense.

For questions or more information, contact Goleta Neighborhood Services Department, 961-7558 (Spanish translation available).

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!
