Goleta Beach 2.0 Report on the Way

Thursday, May 17, 2012

County supervisors voted unanimously this week to hire AMEC Environmental Services to prepare an environmental impact report (EIR) for their “Goleta Beach 2.0” plan, a managed retreat approach to preserving the county’s most popular public park. Additionally, they okay’d the use of some $1.5 million in Coastal Impact Assistance Program funding to pay for the EIR process. Goleta Beach 2.0 calls for the removal of illegal rock revetment walls, relocation of more than 100 parking spots, conversion of certain parking areas back to sandy dune-esque landscape, and relocation of major underground utility lines.
