New Paved Path Unveiled for School Kids


What was once a flood-prone dirt path to school for El Camino Elementary School and San Marcos High School students is now a paved walkway with drainage improvements. The new 1,300-foot path in the unincorporated area near Goleta, called the Tatum Multi-Use Trail Project (pictured), was completed over the summer and was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting on Monday attended by officials from the county and the Santa Barbara Unified School District. Supervisor Janet Wolf, whose district includes the trail, said, “I know this path will provide a much safer route to school for students and community members.”
