WHAT: At a Special Meeting of the County Parks Commission, commissioners and the public will receive an update on the status of Goleta Beach Park following impacts from recent winter storms. Topics for the special meeting include specifics of the California Coastal Commission Emergency Permit; balancing recreation, environment and critical infrastructure; and preserving the Park for generations to come.

WHY: In response to major storm events in January and February 2017, the California Coastal Commission approved Emergency Permits for the County of Santa Barbara to install rock revetments along approximately 948 feet of Goleta Beach Park and perform repairs to the base of Goleta Pier. The emergency rock was installed to help prevent major flooding and damage to park infrastructure, including sanitary sewer, electrical and water lines, recreational facilities, a restaurant, parking lot, and two restrooms. Review and analysis of the temporary emergency protective measures are currently in process.
