Participate in a Council Meeting In-Person or Virtually

It’s never been easier to attend a Goleta City Council meeting which are held the first and third Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. You can attend/participate in person by going to Council Chambers located at 130 Cremona Drive or join virtually via zoom (the link is posted in the agenda). The City hopes to maximize public participation by providing both options. 

Over the course of the pandemic, the City’s City Council, Board, and Commission meetings transitioned to a fully virtual platform. Since March of 2020, the City held more than 160 virtual City meetings! With COVID-19 restrictions loosening, the City was able to welcome the public back for in-person Council meetings on April 5, 2022.

You can watch live or recorded meetings on the City of Goleta website at and on Goleta TV Channel 19.
