In 2016-2017, the City of Goleta began 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.
