Gaviota May Be Designated Scenic Highway

An effort to include a 21-mile stretch of the 101 along the Gaviota Coast ​— ​from western Goleta to Las Cruces ​— ​in California’s State Scenic Highway System will reach the County Board of Supervisors on 10/4. The designation wouldn’t affect existing regulations associated with that section of highway, but it would put it on more maps as a draw for tourists while “recognizing how our policies and programs have preserved what’s there,” according to Mindy Fogg with Santa Barbara County’s planning department. With supervisorial go-ahead, the plan will head to Caltrans for final consideration.
