A collaborative process to improve public safety and access for all users while protecting and enhancing scenic, environmental, cultural, and historical resources. The concept plan was reviewed by the City Council on February 10, 2015, and referred to the City Public Works Department for inclusion in the City’s Capital Improvement Program. The concept plan was reviewed by the Board of Supervisors on February 17, 2015, and referred to the County Public Works Department for inclusion in the County’s Capital Improvement Program.

This project began in 2013 as two-year concept level planning process funded by the Caltrans Community-Based Transportation Planning Grant Program. Caltrans planning grants promote transportation and land use planning projects that encourage community involvement and partnership. This project will include community and key stakeholder input, collaboration, and consensus building.

Public Boards and Commissions Hearing/Meetings

From summer to fall 2014, the concept project plans were reviewed by County and City Boards and Commissions. The County Board of Supervisors and the City Council reviewed the plan in February 2015.

NEW Additional Public Workshop

To increase awareness of the Mission Park to Mission Canyon Multimodal Improvements Plan, the Santa Barbara City Council has directed City staff to hold a third public workshop. The workshop will be held at the Museum of Natural History on Wednesday, April 8, from 7:00pm-8:30pm. The purpose of the meeting will be to present the conceptual plan, to allow the public to ask questions about the project, and to understand the public process that lead to the plan.
