County Approves Mission Canyon Improvement Plan


What will be a joint effort by the City and County of Santa Barbara regarding transportation-related changes to the Mission Canyon area passed muster with the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, one week after the City Council gave its green light. A dedicated bike lane and sidewalk, among other alterations meant to make the corridor safer for pedestrians and bicyclists, are proposed; opponents worry they will create new safety issues. Design plans for the suggested changes are still to come, as is funding.
