CITY OF SANTA BARBARA LAND DEVELOPMENT TEAM OPEN HOUSE
The City’s Land Development Team (LDT) invites the public to drop in and meet with members of the team, ask questions, learn about important current work efforts, and share any ideas or concerns.
Who is the LDT? The LDT is made up of City staff who review development projects that require land use permits from the City and includes representatives from Planning, Engineering, Fire, Transportation, Building and Safety, Water Resources, and Creeks Divisions. The Open House will be an informal setting and will take place on Monday, June 12, 2017, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Faulkner Gallery Room of the Main Public Library at 40 East Anapamu Street.
We welcome the public to stop by and find out about some of the work efforts going on and provide feedback on our review process. If you have any questions, please contact Beatriz Gularte at Bgularte@SantaBarbaraCA.gov.
CITY COUNCIL ACTS TO RE-ESTABLISH FULL SIGN COMMITTEE
On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, City Council approved the re-establishment of the full Sign Committee, which had been temporarily scaled down in 2010 due to the recession and reductions in staffing. Over the last seven years, sign proposals have been reviewed in two separate ABR or HLC “Consent” Sign meetings. With the recent reinstatement of the Sign Committee, one bi-weekly meeting will occur every other Tuesday morning. Meetings will be held at 9:00 am in the David Gebhard Public Meeting Room, at 630 Garden Street, beginning on July 18th, 2017. The Sign Committee will comprise three primary members, with two alternate members, one from the ABR and one from the HLC, serving as needed to meet quorum requirements.
The lower-level Conforming sign review will still occur, and will be condensed from two separate meetings into one weekly meeting every Tuesday morning.
