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. 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.
On Friday, February 26, the Advisory Committee will meet from 8:30 - 10:30 AM to discuss the feedback from the Historic Landmarks Commission and to further discuss and refine the concept plan. The Public is welcome and can login virtually with information found on the agenda at the following link: https://www.santabarbaraca.gov/gov/brdcomm/dm/dlgpr/default.asp
On February 2, 2021, Staff provided City Council with an update on the status of the concept plan for the revitalization of De La Guerra Plaza Project. The update detailed what has happened in the past two years and the development of the concept plan with the Advisory Committee.
