Proposal to Allow Alcohol at Carrillo Recreation Center Focus of Public Meeting

The policy change would apply to weddings, fundraisers and other special events

The City of Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department will conduct a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16 to consider a staff recommendation to designate the Carrillo Recreation Center as a facility where limited alcohol use is allowed by permit.

The renovation of the Carrillo Recreation Center is near completion, and the department looks forward to the opportunity to hold a limited number of weddings, family gatherings, fundraisers, concerts, dances and special events to complement current programming.

The policy recommendation would be similar to use at other recreation facilities for families and community groups that reserve the facility. At the meeting, information will be shared on the proposal, and an opportunity provided for residents and businesses to give feedback.

Those with concerns or suggestions about the use of the center are encouraged to attend the meeting, which will be held in the Carrillo Ballroom of the Carrillo Recreation Center, 100 E. Carrillo St. in Santa Barbara.

For more information, contact Sarah Hanna, recreation programs manager, at 805.564.5428 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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!
