Week of April 4-April 8: SB city council and advisory committee meetings

Santa Barbara city government: All council and advisory committee meetings now are in-person; only the Council will have a hybrid access, enabling those unable to attend to access, to speak via Zoom; public comment to the commissions must be in person. Meetings will be broadcast live on City TV-Channel 18 and online at Written public comment is allowed via email before the beginning of the meeting – times vary, check the commission website.

A long-time Edhat subscriber thought it would be helpful and interesting for the community to have accessible a weekly listing of selected meetings, those of possible city-wide interest. We agreed. Please tell us what you think, good idea? waste of time? want it to continue but covering more than Santa Barbara city? There were requests for coverage of Carpinteria and Goleta; volunteers to do that and/or County meetings, please contact

Santa Barbara City has a calendar of meetings; here’s the calendar for April: (Beware: the Calendar is a guide and not always accurate: it lists for Monday, a meeting of the State Street Advisory Committee, not listed on its webpage.) City TV covers many of the meetings and has reruns;

If there’s something you want covered or if we’ve missed a meeting or misposted an address, please note in the Comments section. Thanks!
