In 2016-2017, the City of Goleta will be conducting a citywide historic resources survey. Working with a consultant team from Historic Resources Group, the project will consist of the creation of a comprehensive Citywide Historic Context Statement and a Citywide Historic Resources Survey to create an inventory of historic resources in the City. The context statement and survey will consider properties constructed through 1969.
The team will look at all property types – residential (single- and multi-family), commercial, industrial, and institutional (civic buildings, schools, social clubs, etc.) – and will evaluate properties for potential architectural, social, and cultural significance. The team will be conducting outreach throughout the project, both to keep the community apprised of the project status and to solicit input on potentially significant properties and neighborhoods.

On October 18, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. at Goleta City Hall Council Chambers (130 Cremona Drive, Suite B), there will be a public workshop to discuss the draft of the Goleta Citywide Historic Context Statement and receive input. Click here to review the document. The Historic Context Statement identifies important historic development patterns, events, and people associated with Goleta’s distinct neighborhoods and historic districts. The statement identifies property types, their associated character-defining features, and development patterns from the Rancho period (1821-1865) to post-World War II development (1946-1969).
If you are unable to make the public workshop, comments on the draft statement may be submitted in writing to Lisa Prasse, Current Planning Manager, at email@example.com by 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.
