City of Goleta Project Receives Project of the Year Award!
The Hollister Class I Bike Path/Multi-Purpose Path received the Bikeways and Trails Project of the Year Award! This award was given by the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The award recognizes a project that has improved or implemented a bikeway and/or multi-use trail (pedestrians and bicycles) in order to increase and promote community connectivity and encourage non-motorized transportation. This is the second award the project has received. Earlier this year it was named Santa Barbara County Project of the Year by the Santa Barbara-Ventura Branch of ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers).
"We are thrilled that the Hollister Class I Bike Path continues to be recognized for increasing both safety and circulation in west Goleta" said Mayor Paula Perotte. "I frequently see children, commuters and recreational bikers benefitting from this new, attractive project. I am proud of the hard work City staff put into making this transportation alternative such a success."The 14-foot wide concrete path along Hollister Avenue from Pacific Oaks Road to Ellwood Elementary School 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. Learn more about the Hollister Class I Bike Path/Multi-Purpose Path at http://tinyurl.com/HollisterClassI.
