The Goleta City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to allow the developers of the Rincon Palms Hotel (proposed for the corner of Hollister Avenue and Storke Road) extra time to rework the project after councilmembers and dozens of Goleta residents voiced their concerns — mostly about traffic and obstructed mountain views — at a council meeting on 9/3. The developers came to Tuesday’s meeting with possible changes: decreased building elevation, building height, floor area ratio, and conference center size (which could reduce the parking). They’re also exploring moving the building further back from Hollister and reverting back to the original plan for a rooftop deck. The new revisions will be presented to the council at a date to be determined.
