NOTICE OF COURTHOUSE CLOSURE SOLVANG

The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara, intends to close the clerk's office of the Solvang Division of the Superior Court located at 1745 Mission Drive, Suite C, Solvang, California. The Court has taken this action due to severe ongoing budget reductions. The clerk's office will close at the end of the business day on October 10, 2014. Traffic Court trials originating from the Solvang jurisdiction will continue to be conducted at the Solvang facility the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.

Effective October 14, 2014 all matters previously filed at the Solvang Court will be filed at: Santa Barbara Superior Court

Lompoc Division 115 Civic Center Plaza Lompoc, CA 93436

The court finds that above actions are necessary due to the significant and continuing cuts to the state judicial branch budget. Since 2009, state funding for the judicial branch has been significantly reduced, with those reductions impacting the budgets of individual superior courts. The limited amount of funding restored in fiscal year 2014/2015 does not make it fiscally feasible to keep the Solvang Division's Clerk's Office open.

Workload considerations dictate that the court staff be redirected from the Solvang Division location to assist in the Lompoc Division. If you would like to submit comments about the proposed reductions, please send them to: Darrel E. Parker, Court Executive Officer, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Additionally you may submit comments via e-mail at CtAdmin@sbcourts.org

This notice has been posted on the Court's website at www.sbcourts.org. Pursuant to Government Code section 68106, this proposal has been published for public comment with a deadline of October 6, 2014. Notice will also be posted pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 10.620(g).
