Goleta Beach Pier Closed Through April

The Goleta Beach pier closed today and will remain off-limits until April 30 as repair crews fix massive damage caused by last March’s big storm. The 1,480-foot pier reopened that May to pedestrians but was still unsafe for vehicle traffic. The boat hoist is also still broken.

In February, the California Coastal Commission granted an emergency permit for the repairs — involving the pier’s structure, handrails, and decking — to allow a total reopening. The fixes will be paid for with county funds.
