The Hollister Avenue Complete Streets Corridor Plan is moving forward and we need your input! We will be having a meeting open to the community on March 13 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Goleta Valley Community Center (5679 Hollister Avenue) and a meeting for Old Town business owners and employees on March 14 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. also at the Goleta Valley Community Center.
Attendees at both meetings will see three alternatives for what Hollister Avenue could look like. Should it be reduced from two lanes to one in each direction? What should the bike lanes look like? Do you prefer parallel or diagonal parking on Hollister Avenue? We will be gathering feedback from attendees on the different options to see which one people like best. Hollister Avenue is a main corridor in Old Town Goleta providing access to businesses and residential homes. The Complete Streets project will enhance safety, access and mobility for all users (pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders) on Hollister Avenue between Fairview Avenue and State Route 217. For those who are unable to attend, an online survey will be available shortly to allow for ranking of the three options and comments.
