Goleta Chamber of Commerce Lobbies to Annex Goleta Beach


In the wake of the supervisors’ unanimous 3/18 vote to keep the rock revetments at Goleta Beach, the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce sent out an email advocating that the city take control of the beach from the county. No formal annexation plans exist ​— ​the beach isn’t contiguous to any city land ​— ​but officials have suggested it in past talks regarding the city’s tax-sharing deal with the county.
