A public hearing on the San Jose Creek Bike Path Project will be held at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4. The project has reached the end of the environmental review phase and staff will be returning with additional information regarding impact to trees in the project area and the overall cost of the project.
To learn how to participate in the public hearing, either in-person or virtually, view the City Council meeting agenda, which will be posted in advance of the meeting.
The City Council, at its Sept. 20 meeting, asked staff to provide further information regarding the impact to the trees and the riparian habitat in the project area. Staff will be presenting the results of a tree survey and more information regarding impact to the corridor.
The San Jose Creek Bike Path Project is a key component of Goleta’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, as it will provide a critical connection between existing bike routes north of U.S. 101 and the Atascadero Creek Bike Path to the south.
The project will connect bike routes north of Calle Real all the way to the Coast Route, that connects to Goleta Beach, UCSB, and into Santa Barbara. The complex project has involved close coordination with various agencies including Caltrans Santa Barbara County. A project map is available here.
