County Reluctantly Approves $1 Million for Goleta Beach

The county supervisors expressed frustration as they approved nearly $1 million in emergency work at Goleta Beach. As winter storms slammed into the parkland this winter, county workers hastily added rocks to save the county’s frequented shoreline park from eroding. County Supervisor Janet Wolf, who has fought to maintain the county beach park, acknowledged the “heavy lift” but emphasized that the space is a treasured part of the community. Conservative commenter Andy Caldwell was less enthused about the “unnatural beach,” claiming the county has over the years dumped $12 million into saving it.
