Goleta’s Design Review Board (DRB) took the first look Tuesday at a proposed Taco Bell restaurant for the corner of Hollister Avenue and Pacific Oaks Road, in the University Village shopping center. The fast-food joint would come with a drive-through for eight cars, indoor and outdoor seating, 11 new parking spots, bike racks, and a three-foot wall along Pacific Oaks Road, to block the view of the restaurant from the apartments across the street. The project still has many hurdles to clear — including a second DRB meeting on 12/10 — before it can become a reality.
