City Considers Temporary On-Street Parking Restrictions for Halloween Weekend As a Protection of Goleta’s Neighborhoods Closest to Isla Vista
On October 7 the Goleta City Council will consider a temporary off-street-only parking program for Halloween weekend because of the impacts of Isla Vista Halloween on the City’s neighborhoods, particularly those which are adjacent to Isla Vista. No on-street parking would be allowed for the neighborhoods known as University 1 and University 2 between Cannon Green Drive and Storke Road and from Hollister Avenue to the southern City limits along Whittier Drive.

“Isla Vista Halloween has huge impacts on Goleta’s neighborhoods and those who live in close proximity to Isla Vista have repeatedly expressed their displeasure at the public nuisances associated with this event,” said Vyto Adomaitis, Director of Public Safety and Neighborhood Services. “This proposal is being presented to the Goleta City Council for their consideration as a means to enhance public safety and minimize impacts to these neighborhoods.”
The staff report prepared for the item will be available here no later than Thursday, October 2 at 5 p.m.
