Award Winning Capital Improvement Projects

The City of Goleta is excited to share that two of our Capital Improvement projects have won Project of the Year Awards from the American Public Works Association (APWA) Central Coast Chapter! The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan won the 2018-19 Project of the Year in the Special Studies <$2 million category, and the Hollister Avenue Class I Bike Path / Multi-Purpose Safe Route to School project was Project of the Year runner-up in the Transportation $2-5 million category (its third award).

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is the future of biking and walking in Goleta. It aims to expand and improve the pedestrian and bicycle network in the City of Goleta making it easier to walk and bike around town. The BPMP also promotes public health by encouraging people to walk and bike, reduces automobile usage and fuel consumption, and promotes transportation equity. Learn more at

The Hollister Avenue Class I Bike Path/Multi-Purpose Path is a 14-foot wide concrete path along Hollister Avenue from Pacific Oaks Road to Ellwood Elementary School. It makes travel to and from the school more accessible for students living in the area, and also serves UCSB students, recreational riders and commuters. The path promotes active and sustainable transportation for all. More information is available at
