Platform Holly Town Hall Rebroadcast Available

Plans to decommission Platform Holly, an oil platform off the Goleta coast, remain in the works. It was a packed room for the Town Hall in City Council Chambers on June 7, hosted by the City of Goleta and California State Lands Commission. Attendees heard an update on the status and timeline to decommission Platform Holly. Mayor Pro Tempore Kyle Richards welcomed the audience and turned the meeting over to Jennifer Lucchesi, Executive Officer of the California State Lands Commission.

In addition to discussing the Platform Holly Decommissioning, the Town Hall also covered the Ellwood Onshore Oil and Gas Processing Facility Status Update, PRC 421 Decommissioning Project, Ellwood Marine Terminal Decommissioning, and Summerland Beach Legacy Wells. The Town Hall wrapped up with an open forum for attendees to provide comments and ask questions about the project.
