Goleta Residents Discuss Homelessness Plan
Source: City of Goleta
City of Goleta staff held an interactive and engaging Community Update Meeting for Goleta’s Homelessness Strategic Plan on Wednesday, February 19, at the Goleta Valley Community Center. More than 50 community members and representatives from a variety of organizations attended and learned more about the steps being taken to craft the City’s Homelessness Strategic Plan. Attendees were asked to provide input on the prioritization of suggestions to be included in the draft plan.
Community input is an essential part of the City of Goleta’s effort to develop the City’s first comprehensive Homelessness Strategic Plan. The input received Wednesday evening will be included in the Homelessness Strategic Plan outline, which will be brought before City Council at the next meeting on Tuesday, March 3.
City staff previously held a Community Open House in December 2019, as well as stakeholder meetings, and released a community survey (which has received more than 430 responses). This public engagement is part of a larger effort to address homelessness, including best practice discussions with communities nationwide and enhanced partnerships on regional homelessness efforts. We appreciate the community’s involvement and input in this process thus far and look forward to continued engagement during this important effort.
