Description:

The public is invited to attend a meeting and provide feedback on the results of a Preliminary Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment which will be incorporated into an updated Goleta Slough Ecosystem Management Plan to completed later this year. The meeting will include an overview of the Plan update process and a presentation by the project consultant. A question and answer session will follow the presentation and snacks will be provided.

The Goleta Slough Ecosystem Management Plan was prepared by the Goleta Slough Management Committee and adopted by the City of Santa Barbara in 1997. The purpose of the Plan is to provide a comprehensive framework for ecosystem management and impact mitigation within the Goleta Slough Ecosystem. The proposed update to the GSEMP will update existing conditions and re-evaluate the study area based on projected sea level rise, assess vulnerability and risk to both environmental and human resources, and recommend adaptation strategies.

Goleta Slough, a State Ecological Reserve, is one of the largest coastal wetlands on California’s Central Coast and provides valuable habitat for numerous species. The Slough also encompasses a complex array of land uses including a regional airport, two sanitary district facilities, underground gas storage facilities and pipelines, roads, businesses, and other infrastructure.
