Four years after Goleta’s incorporation, city staff has completed the draft of its general plan, which will guide Goleta’s future development. The working drafts of the Goleta General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan’s various elements have each been reviewed by the City Council – which in turn has taken public comment – every time the council met in its capacity as the Planning Agency.
