    Join Us for the October 3 Goleta City Council Meeting

    Topics Include: SCE Circuit Reliability Review Presentation, Hollister Avenue Old Town Interim Striping Project, Construction Cooperative Agreement with Caltrans, and No Parking Zone on Overpass Road

    We hope you will join us for Goleta’s City Council meeting this Tuesday, October 3, at 5:30 p.m. (closed session begins at 4:00 p.m.). We encourage you to join us in City Council Chambers, watch live, and/or participate via Zoom. Directions for how to do so can be found below. Items on the agenda include:

    • The City Council will receive a Circuit Reliability Review presentation from Southern California Edison (SCE). SCE is an investment owned utility providing electricity to over 15 million residents, including those here in the City of Goleta. SCE will be presenting the most recent reliability report for the city, covering current initiatives, as well as historical data on the electrical circuits serving the city.

    • The Council will discuss alternatives for the Hollister Avenue Old Town Interim Striping Project (Project). The Project will increase safety, accessibility, and mobility for all users on Hollister Avenue between Kellogg Avenue and Fairview Avenue. It includes back-in-angled 90-minute parking, 90-minute parking restrictions, traffic signal upgrades, striping, and pavement delineation improvements. Due to the significant variance between available budget and bids received by the City, Public Works staff is seeking direction from City Council to proceed with one of two different alternatives for this Project.

    • The City Council will discuss the construction cooperative agreement with Caltrans for local improvements related to the San Jose Creek Multipurpose Path (Project). Caltrans is working on its own construction project to replace the SR 217 bridge over San Jose Creek which overlaps with the City’s proposed improvements for the San Jose Creek Multipurpose Path Project. Public Works staff have been working with Caltrans to add a portion of the Project construction back into their Bridge Replacement Project construction as a construction change order. As a first step, Caltrans requires the execution of a cooperative agreement with the City to perform the construction work. The staff report can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/bdzb56wj.
    • The Council will consider adding a No Parking Zone on Overpass Road at the Metropolitan Transit District Terminal 2. Public Works staff determined that a No Parking Zone should be implemented to provide for adequate line of sight, as well as adding 120 feet of red curb along the inside of the 90-degree curve on Overpass Road near the northeast corner of the site to provide adequate space for bus turning. These changes would result in a loss of 11 parking spaces, but 14 on-street parking spaces will remain along the property frontage. The staff report is available here: https://tinyurl.com/5ffj6yj5.
