The UCSB 2010 Long Range Development Plan has applied a "Open Space" land use designation to the project site.

Document Description
The Santa Barbara Campus proposes to restore portions of the historic northern extent of the Devereux Slough primarily on the former golf course property, and would also restore portions of the South Parcel. Proposed restoration efforts would expand slough, wetland and transitional and upland habitats; provide public access and passive recreation amenities (trials and bridges); and promote educational opportunities. Restored areas would be revegetated with native species to create a diverse range of habitats that would connect to and expand important native habitats of the existing lower Devereux Slough and the surrounding Coal Oil Point Reserve. Restoration would be accomplished by excavating approx. 355,000 cubic yards of soil primarily from the golf course property and from approx.. 3 acres of the South Parcel, and by placing the excavated soil primarily on the South Parcel (from which it was excavated for Golf Course construction in 1965). To create a functional hydrologic connection between the restored estuary habitats on the project site and the lower Devereux Slough, the Project would remove a sheet pile water control structure (sill) and associated armoring from Devereux Creek at the Devereux Creek Bridge.
