The City of Goleta's new Zoning Ordinance project is a collaborative process that will revise citywide zoning regulations to implement the General Plan, update development and design standards and permitting procedures, and help realize the community's vision for the future
– a safe, beautiful, vibrant and livable community with a robust local economy and a sustainable relationship with the environment.
The City has completed outreach activities on the Public Review Draft Zoning Ordinance and Map. All comments received on the Public Review Draft are being considered collectively and a Public Hearing Draft is being prepared. The Public Hearing Draft will be considered at future public meetings.
