Document Description
The proposed project involves an application to the Santa Barbara County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) for the annexation to the City of Santa Barbara of approximately 20,944 acres located north and west of the existing City boundaries. The proposed annexation area is generally bounded to the north by the Los Padres National Forest Boundary, to the south by the Pacific Ocean, to the east by the City of Santa Barbara, and to the west by the eastern boundary of the Embarcadero Municipal Improvement District on the north side of U.S. 101 and the Urban Boundary Line on the south side of U.S. Highway 101. The proposed annexation is specifically indended to help achieve the long-term goals of the City and the areas to be annexed, including the promotion of an orderly, coordinated approach to planning throughout the South Coast, preservation of agriculture and open space, and amendments to the City Charter to provide a system of government representing the interests of the existing City and areas to be annexed. The City is proposing to adopt the existing Goleta Community Plan and other applicable County land use plans, policies, guidelines, and regulations for the proposed annexation area in their entirety (pre-zoning). No changes in land use designations, zone district, policies, guidelines, or development regulations from those currently imposed by the County of Santa Barbara are proposed as part of the annexation. Development potential would be the same as that currently allowed under the County jurisdiction for the project area until such time that the newly expanded city and newly elected city council adopt a new General Plan, Zoning Ordinance, and Charter amendments to regulate development for the annexed area.
