County Approves Mission Canyon Plan

The Mission Canyon Community Plan, in the works since 2006, received its final approval on Tuesday, when the supervisors voted unanimously to adopt it. The supervisors previously certified the plan’s environmental documents in February, and the Santa Barbara City Council ​— ​the area is in the county but adjacent to the city ​— ​approved it in March. The plan for the area, which includes about 1,000 homes, addresses dealing with future growth, on-street parking, and protections for sensitive habitats and neighborhood character.
