Goleta Approves 465-Unit Building Project

A 465-unit residential complex will soon be coming to Goleta, after the City Council approved it 5-0 on 7/15. The Villages at Los Carneros, to be situated between Los Carneros Road and Highway 101, was okayed in June by the city’s Planning Commission and will offer a variety of housing types and outdoor amenities. Community members voiced concerns about how the project would affect traffic and water supplies. The Goleta Water District said enough water is currently available, but it could put the kibosh on water meters for the building if resources run dry.
