Goleta Wraps Up Workshops on General Plan

Goleta city officials came away with more input on amendments to their General Plan Wednesday, at the final session of a round of workshops discussing changes to the document.

“How general should the General Plan be?” was a question raised that evening, as interested community members packed council chambers to voice their opinions to the Goleta City Council and Planning Commission.

Environmentalists and slow growth advocates turned out strongly to defend the language of the original plan, which favors tighter regulations on development, while housing advocates urged for more flexibility in its policies. Both sides, however, were pleased with the process and the contact it provided between the city and the different sectors of the public.

 The General Plan amendment workshops are over for now, but the public comment period lasts until the end of the month. City staff will then summarize the comments taken from this and previous workshops and deliver a report mid-November.

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!
