Meet Our New Design Review Board Member

The City is pleased to welcome James (Jim) King as our newest member of the Design Review Board. Jim is a native of Boston and lived for a number of years in Manhattan where he worked for The New York Times as an advertising sales representative. He is a graduate of Tufts University (BS in psychology) and Harvard School of Public Health’s Management Development Program in Health. He held numerous positions on the east coast before moving to Stockton, CA, where he worked for Health Plan of San Joaquin and the San Joaquin Business Journal.

As a Goleta community member, Jim is looking forward to his new role. He said, “I have tried to give back, in some way, to every city I have ever lived in, either by participating in the political community, serving on the board of a non-profit or actually being employed by a charitable organization. I feel that serving on the Design Review Board will provide me with that type of opportunity, and that both I and the City of Goleta could benefit from my participation. I really appreciate everything this city has to offer and I look forward to serving Goleta in this capacity.”

The Design Review Board is a seven-member body that encourages development using the best professional design practices to enhance the visual aesthetics of the community and prevent poor quality of design.
