Gaviota, Goleta Plans Move Forward with Enviro Reviews

Environmental analyses of the Gaviota Coast Plan and the Goleta Valley Community Plan are moving forward and will be conducted by RECON Environmental, Inc., per a vote by the supervisors on Tuesday. The study for the Gaviota plan could cost up to $203,500, which had already been set aside; since 2009, when work on that plan got underway, a related committee has hosted dozens of public meetings seeking input. Finalizing the analysis of the Goleta Valley plan ​— ​the county initiated a committee for that project in 2008 and has since also hosted dozens of hearings ​— ​will cost $38,600 on top of the $86,000 already spent on a first draft; that additional money was previously allocated.
