Goleta Needs Your Input

Workshop on Wildfire Plan and Butterfly Habitat on February 23rd


The City of Goleta is looking for your input next week at the first public workshop on the Wildland Fire Plan and the Monarch Butterfly Habitat Management Plan.

Our sense of place is strongly influenced by the scenic beauty of Goleta’s open spaces, foothills, and ocean resources. This workshop is an opportunity to influence land management techniques that take into consideration all community interests,” said Anne Wells, Advance Planning Manager, City of Goleta.

Are you concerned about wildfires?

Do you know that Monarch butterflies live in our eucalyptus groves during the winter months?

Are you aware that fire planning helps us protect our natural resources?

These are some of the questions that will be asked and discussed on Wednesday, February 23 rd at 6 p.m. at the Goleta Valley Community Center at 5679 Hollister Avenue in Goleta. We encourage those who live, work and play in Goleta to join in this dialogue. Spanish translation will be available. For any questions or more information, contact Dan Nemechek, Senior Planner, at 961-7544
