Goleta Strives For ‘Silver Status’


Goleta announced plans this week to become the state’s ninth “Silver Status” California Green Community, following in the environmentally friendly footsteps of cities like Ventura, Simi Valley, and Santa Monica. To reach that silver status, the city will have to demonstrate to the eight other cities that it made significant strides in areas such as energy efficiency, waste reduction, and water conservation. California Green Community encourages cities throughout the state to reduce their environmental impact and bestows silver, gold, and platinum awards.
