Goleta Land Purchase Delayed

On 5/15 the county Board of Supervisors decided that the City of Goleta will have to wait to purchase a one-acre piece of property. The city was looking for $350,000 for the Doty property, located northeast of the Ellwood Mesa area. Goleta offered to buy it at a price of $425,000. The city plans to make the land open space. Goleta paid $47,000 to have a chance at the property first, and has until November of this year to complete the purchase.
