Goleta Chamber Action Alert - Support the Goleta City Council on June 3rd

Goleta General Plan Amendments: Track 2 Final Deliberations - Support the Council on Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

On Tuesday, June 3rd at 6 pm, the Goleta City Council is scheduled to begin final deliberations on the Track 2 General Plan amendments. These amendments did not require further environmental review and are a big step toward fixing inconsistent, contradictory, and illegal policies in the current plan.

Come out and support the Council as they review the recommended amendments and decide on final approval. Public input is critical to the process as the Council responds to the community's call to correct Goleta's flawed General Plan. The Council wants to hear from you.

Have your voice heard on Tuesday, June 3rd. For more information, please visit the City's website for agendas and staff reports or contact the Goleta Valley Chamber at 967-2500.

Goleta Business License Survey

From the Goleta Chamber:

The City of Goleta has asked the Chamber for feedback as the City enters the early stages of studying the feasibility of a modern business license program. City officials have indicated that the program would be useful for accurate data collection, code enforcement, and as an untapped source of revenue. If initiated, the Chamber believes a major portion of the earned revenue should go towards economic development in the city.

We appreciate the City coming to the Chamber at the beginning of this process and we encourage the business community to participate in our five minute survey. Your feedback is valuable as the City considers this program.

If you have already participated in the survey via the Chamber's website, thank you for your input.
