Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Avenue

The Old Town Sidewalks project will provide sidewalks on at least one side of neighborhood streets north of Hollister Avenue between South Fairview and Kinman Avenues, as well as along Pine Avenue south of Hollister Avenue. It also includes storm water drainage improvements and 42 angled parking spaces on the east side of Magnolia Avenue between Mandarin Drive and the railroad tracks.

Members of the community are invited to attend and provide input.

Environmental Public Comment Period/Notice of Public Hearing

The City released the Final Mitigated Negative Declaration (FMND) in October 2017. The City Council held a Public Hearing regarding the adequacy of the FMND at the November 7, 2017, City Council Meeting.

The Final Mitigated Negative Declaration and the Draft MND can be found here.


The Old Town Sidewalk Improvement Program will construct a network of sidewalks along at least one side of the streets in the residential areas of Old Town. The project will assess sidewalk deficiencies, create a prioritization plan, and install sidewalk improvements north of Hollister Avenue from South Fairview Avenue to Kinman Avenue as well as Pine Avenue south of Hollister Avenue.

Purpose and Need

The project will provide for pedestrian access within Old Town Goleta by completing missing sections of sidewalk. These links will connect residents to and from Hollister Avenue to businesses and transportation lines or points south of Hollister to the commercial and light industrial areas.

Strategic Plan Goals

To maintain and improve City-wide facilities, roads and traffic circulation.
Return Old Town to the Vital Center of the City.
Maintain a safe community.

Funding Sources

The City was recently awarded an Active Transportation Planning (ATP) Grant for $2.224 million for the project. An additional $555 thousand will be applied as the local match from the Measure A local funds and Goleta Transportation Improvement Program (GTIP).

Current Phase

The project is in the right-of-way and design phase, with construction anticipated to begin in late 2019.
