LOOKING UP: The Santa Barbara City Council took an early step toward resolving upper State Street’s identity crisis by appropriating $192,631 to hire consultants. Meyer, Mohaddes Associates will prepare an improvement plan for the area by analyzing traffic, circulation, and parking; distributing an informational booklet to residents; and conducting public meetings. The firm will also propose interim development standards and design guidelines for City Council approval. About $67,000 will go to Moore Iacofano Goltsman, Inc., which will help disseminate information and proposals by offering graphics expertise and facilitating meetings.
