Noise Patrol Set Up for SBCC Neighborhoods

Santa Barbara City College and the Police Department are kicking in $103,000 each to create a new noise patrol enforcement team ​— ​made up of City College students under police supervision ​— ​to respond to growing concern by City College neighbors about noisy students. The new squad ​— ​known as the Student Neighborhood Assistance Program (SNAP) ​— ​emerged out of a series of quasi-mediated workshops that took place two years ago between neighbors and school administrators to discuss issues of concern and ways to solve them. In a similar vein, the City Council adopted resident permit parking requirements for two blocks on the Mesa’s La Marina Terrace near City College. Residents have complained students are taking their parking spaces.
