Input Requested for Goleta’s Historic Preservation

As part of the ongoing efforts to identify the City’s historic resources, in 2016 the City of Goleta embarked on a citywide historic resources survey and development of a comprehensive historic context statement. The purpose of a historic context statement is to place built resources in the appropriate historic, social, and architectural context so that the relationship between an area’s physical environment and its broader history can be established. Residents had an opportunity to share what buildings they thought should be considered historic resources. Refer to our November 2016 Monarch Press article for more details. Based on resident input and research from our consultants, Historic Resources Group, a draft of the Historic Preservation Context Statement has been created by the consultants and there will be a public workshop to discuss and provide input on October 18, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at Goleta City Hall, Council Chambers (130 Cremona Drive, Suite B). The Historic Preservation Context Statement will provide the foundation for the ordinance that will follow.
