This Week's Public Meetings in Santa Barbara
By an edhat reader
Santa Barbara has an amazing number of resident committees and commissions, 46 on the city government webpage, https://www.santabarbaraca.gov/gov/default.asp. All now are held by webinar and they are not so easy to find.
This long-time Edhat subscriber thought it would be helpful and interesting for the community to have accessible a weekly listing of selected meetings. Please tell us what you think, good idea? waste of time? want it to continue, but covering more than Santa Barbara city?
