De La Guerra Plaza Revitalization Project

Why this Project?

De La Guerra Plaza was designated a Public Square in 1853 and has since served as Santa Barbara’s center of town. In addition to serving as a civic center, it has provided the location for the original Police and Fire Stations. It is the venue for political activism and events including Old Spanish Days. Should the Cota Commuter Lot be selected as the site for the new Police Station, the Saturday Farmer’s Market would require relocation. De La Guerra Plaza presents an opportunity for the City to revitalize and reactivate its center of town. A revitalized Plaza will involve expanding the available space by making structural and aesthetic improvements to better serve the community’s arts and cultural events throughout the year.

An Archaeological Investigation - De La Guerra Plaza

March 19, 2019 

An archaeological investigation will be conducted at De La Guerra Plaza starting Saturday, March 23 through Friday, March 29. It will require shovel test pits throughout the turf area resulting in some temporary turf closures, but sidewalks won't be impacted. This work is necessary prior to development of a concept plan for revitalization of the Plaza.
