Environmental analyses of the Gaviota Coast Plan and the Goleta Valley Community Plan are moving forward and will be conducted by RECON Environmental, Inc., per a vote by the supervisors on Tuesday. The study for the Gaviota plan could cost up to $203,500, which had already been set aside; since 2009, when work on that plan got underway, a related committee has hosted dozens of public meetings seeking input. Finalizing the analysis of the Goleta Valley plan ​— ​the county initiated a committee for that project in 2008 and has since also hosted dozens of hearings ​— ​will cost $38,600 on top of the $86,000 already spent on a first draft; that additional money was previously allocated.
