Halloween Parking Permit Program for City of Goleta Residents
Source: City of Goleta
The fun of Halloween can also be a hassle for local residents because of the parking problems caused by extra visitors to Isla Vista. In an effort to help alleviate the burden on affected neighborhoods, City Council has approved the successful temporary parking permit program which began in 2014. Restrictions are for the Goleta neighborhoods closest to Isla Vista: University 1 and University 2 neighborhoods, including the Cannon Green Condominium complex. The boundaries are Cannon Green Drive to the west, Hollister Avenue to the north, Storke Road to the east and Whittier Drive to the south. A map is available at http://tinyurl.com/halloweenparking.
Each household in the affected area will receive two parking permits in the mail by October 20. Parking restrictions are for Friday and Saturday nights, when most party-goers are expected to be in the area:
7:00 p.m. Friday, October 26, 2018, to 7:00 a.m. Saturday, October 27, 2018; and
7:00 p.m. Saturday, October 27, 2018, to 7:00 a.m. Sunday, October 28, 2018
Parking restrictions are only in effect during the evening and overnight hours; daytime events at Girsh Park should not be impacted. Vehicles without permits will be cited and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
