Santa Barbara County and the cities of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, and Goleta, with the assistance of the Santa Barbara Foundation, are hosting the South Coast Housing Workshop – Local Housing Elements on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, from 4:00–6:00 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Central Library Faulkner Gallery. The purpose of the Workshop is to discuss regional housing needs, challenges, and opportunities within each South Coast jurisdiction. The local jurisdictions are inviting members of the press, housing advocates, community-based and faith-based organizations, and residents to attend the Workshop and contribute ideas for future housing needs.

Each participating jurisdiction is currently updating the Housing Element of their respective General Plans. The Housing Elements contain policies and programs to increase housing development and ensure adequate types of housing across all income levels in the communities. The county and cities will each present an update on the process and timelines for their Housing Element updates. The event will include a panel discussion and breakout groups for each jurisdiction.
