Lower Arroyo Burro RestorationCreeks

Lower Arroyo BurroIn February 2016 the Parks and Recreation Department and Creeks Division collaborated with the Trust for Public Land to acquire the former "Veronica Meadows" development site.

Acquisition of this 14.7 acre parcel in the Las Positas Valley along Arroyo Burro creates a major new open space park offering passive recreation opportunities for current and future generations of residents and visitors alike.

The Creeks Division intends to implement an extensive creek restoration project on the site that will stabilize eroding creek banks, improve water quality and enhance wildlife habitat.

Funding for the $4 million purchase was made possible with City Council approval of $2.7 million in Measure B (Creeks Division) funds, and $1.3 million in grant funding from the California Natural Resources Agency's Environmental  Enhancement  and Mitigation Program ($500,000), State Coastal Conservancy ($500,000) and Santa Barbara County's Coastal Resources Enhancement Fund ($300,000).
