SANTA BARBARA, CA – June 22, 2021– The Community Development and Public Works Departments, in compliance with Santa Barbara County health guidelines, resumed in-person public counter service at 630 Garden Street. All counters now operate under a check-in system, and those visiting the counters are encouraged to sign up for a time slot prior to their visit.
