Idea Floated to Form Old Town Community Association in Goleta


Several people ​— ​including politicians Janet Wolf, Roger Aceves, Paula Perotte, and Ed Easton, and Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce president Kristen Miller ​— ​gathered Monday night at the Goleta Valley Community Center to discuss forming an Old Town Community Association. The attendees suggested the group be modeled after the Milpas Community Association, whose events ​— ​a holiday parade, “Taste of” festival, and regular cleanups ​— ​have sought to unite the area’s residents and businesses. Main concerns for Old Town included roundabouts planned for either side of Highway 217, and parking and crosswalks along Hollister Avenue. Supporters of the association agreed on the need to establish steady funding and dedicated members.
