More Housing on Hollister?
By an edhat reader
The City of Goleta will be considering a 33-unit Hollister Village Apartment proposal at its meeting next Tuesday. The proposal will include 16 studio and 17 one-bedroom apartments in the 7000 block of Hollister Ave.
Essentially, the Hollister Village developers would like to remove 5 units and instead add 33 units. Their proposal states the, "... Amended Project would replace the entitled project of 12,687 square feet of commercial and five live/work units with a 33-unit apartment project on the currently undeveloped 1.84-acre portion within Hollister Village." The proposal can be viewed here.
What do edhat readers think of this amendment to add 33 more units to a space that was originally designated for just 5? Does the Goleta community want or need more housing crammed in a small space?
If you have any opinions on this, the City states: " Written submittals concerning agenda items may be sent to the City Clerk e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; or mail: Attn: City Council and City Clerk at 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B Goleta, California 93117.

Material received after this time may not be reviewed by the City Council prior to the meeting."
