Goleta Beach Battle Heats Back Up


The battle over what’s best for Goleta Beach ​— ​some want to keep the rock revetments in place, others want to remove them ​— got a head start Tuesday, courtesy of Supervisor Peter Adam’s long-stewing issues with one of the project’s EIR consultants and the attention drawn to the park after last weekend’s heavy storm. The board will hear the issue on 3/18. The beach reopened on Wednesday; the Coastal Commission on Tuesday authorized that walking paths be cut down to the beach from the park. As of deadline, the pier remains closed.
