KV, that's not completely true. A news article published in February estimates that Goleta's contribution to the park will likely be around $1 million. This amount includes a $250,000 "grant" and a waiver of $283,875 in park development fees in addition to future commitments. While the majority of the funds are being raised through "private" sources, it is not correct to assume that there are no community resources being used for this project.
On A Community Pool in Goleta

Great idea! This would be a much better use of our community resources than the planned ice skating rink in Goleta. A community pool would be well-utilized by a large segment of the population.

Great idea! What an amazing way to preserve tradition and educate the community on its history. I hope they make this happen. I would love to experience this for myself.

Shame on the parade organizers! If not to celebrate the freedom that our soldiers have fought (and died) for, then what is the parade about?

Right on, foofighter! Because we all know that the government is very adept at making the best choices for all its people. <insert tone of sarcasm>
I agree with K_V, it's that kind of fascist thinking that promotes hatred, intolerance, and vigilantism. You can have your police state.... No thanks!

Alas, JohnLocke, it was not the fault of the hard-working city employees. If you had done your homework you would know that a previous article had already given credit to a rogue do-gooder.

Ugly. Unwanted. Detrimental to our community. This is not what the "Goodland" is about. This will mean more cars, traffic congestion, and another nail in the grave of local, ma & pa merchants. I agree with italiansburg... This will push Goleta toward the aesthetic found in SM and Oxnard. Take your big box store elsewhere!
On Targeting Goleta Target
Posted on April 3 at 12:20 p.m.
This action in addition to the rush to approve a big-box store less than a mile down the road indicate the city leaders' priorities. Old Town will continue to be neglected while resources are devoted to "develop" other areas of the city. More big-box stores will only further detract from the heart and soul of Old Town Goleta. What a shame. Thanks to Easton and Perotte for taking a stand.
On De-prioritzing Old Town Goleta?
Posted on March 19 at 1:08 p.m.
Old Town is the heart of Goleta. It has character and soul. What a blow it is to the city to loose these redevelopment funds. I hope they don't give up the dream of a revitalized Old Town. There's so much potential for this neighborhood. With some planning and the necessary resources, this area could be a thriving and vibrant community. And please, I hope they remember to involve and enlist the help of its residents. There's a great deal of community resources --in terms of its people-- that could be mobilized. іViva Goleta!
