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?
Santa Barbara City has a calendar of meetings; here’s February’s calendar: https://www.santabarbaraca.gov/cals/. In addition, City TV covers many of them and has reruns; here’s the very useful programming page: https://www.santabarbaraca.gov/gov/depts/cityadmin/programming.asp
