Land Development Oversight Subcommittee
to Hold Meeting on October 14

In 2020, the Santa Barbara City Council established a Land Development Team (LDT) Oversight Subcommittee composed of Councilmembers Alejandra Gutierrez, Eric Friedman, and Michael Jordan. The purpose of the subcommittee is to work with the City’s Land Development Team staff to implement recommended process improvements. The next Land Development Team Oversight Subcommittee meeting will be held via GoToWebinar on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 1:30 p.m.

A survey was recently conducted to get a pulse from our customers who have experienced our first phase of process improvements over the past year and a half to determine how well the improvements are working. This meeting will focus on key themes from the customer survey and discuss next steps in customer engagement to refine the first phase of improvements and to help prioritize other process improvements identified in the Land Development Process Improvement Report prepared by The Novak Consulting Group.

A meeting agenda is available at, which includes information about how to participate in the meeting. A recording of this committee meeting can be found at that same web link after the meeting concludes.

WRITTEN PUBLIC COMMENT: Public comments may be submitted via email to prior to the meeting. All public comments received will be provided to the Subcommittee and will become part of the public record.
