The City of Goleta is applying for a Clean California Local Grant and needs your input. The City would use the grant funds to reduce trash, pollution and beautify Old Town Goleta. We want to hear what projects you would want to see if we receive the grant. Types of projects include adding additional free bulky item pick-ups, planting drought tolerant plants, putting up art installations, and more. Please complete our survey by Friday, April 14, 2023. Thank you to everyone who has already provided input.
Caltrans developed the Clean California Local Grant Program to beautify and improve local streets and roads, tribal lands, parks, pathways, and transit centers. Through the combination of adding beautification measures and art in public spaces along with the removal of litter and debris, this effort will enhance communities and improve spaces for walking and recreation.
The goals of the Clean California Local Grant Program are to:
- Reduce the amount of waste and debris within public rights-of-way, pathways, parks, transit centers, and other public spaces.
- Enhance, rehabilitate, restore, or install measures to beautify and improve public spaces and mitigate the urban heat island effect.
- Enhance public health, cultural connection, and community placemaking by improving public spaces for walking and recreation.
- Advance equity for underserved communities.
After the survey closes, the City will submit a grant application to Caltrans. We will be notified if we receive the funds in the fall.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
