Planning for Our City’s Future Needs

On February 23rd, the City of Goleta hosted a public workshop for a future citywide Wildland Fire Plan and a Monarch Butterfly Management Plan. This workshop provided an opportunity for public engagement early in the process and allowed community members to comment on the City’s efforts to protect environmentally sensitive habitat areas and reduce the risk of wildland fires within the City, especially our open spaces.

The information collected from this workshop will aid in the development of recommendations to be included in the forthcoming plans. It is anticipated that drafts of the Wildland Fire Plan and Monarch Butterfly Habitat Management Plan will be completed in early fall 2011 and will be presented to the public at another public workshop.
