County Parks, Buildings Getting $1.4 Million in Repairs


By the end of this fiscal year, select county buildings and parks will receive facelifts paid for with $1.4 million set aside for preventative maintenance projects; Nojoqui Falls Park, Ocean Beach Park, Goleta Beach, Manning Park, and various offices and fire stations will be upgraded. The county departments in charge of parks and buildings also received funds to tackle deferred maintenance projects; the backlog is around $84 million. A plan approved last year to funnel 18 percent of new revenue growth to maintenance ​— ​$102 million over the next decade ​— ​will provide $1 million in 2015-2016.
