City Council to Review Report on Proposed Initiative at Next Meeting

At its meeting on Monday, Dec. 13 at 5:30 p.m., the Carpinteria City Council will consider a report analyzing the impacts and effects of a proposed initiative put forth by proponents in response to the Surfliner Inn project.

The initiative proposes to change and/or readopt the City of Carpinteria’s General Plan designation and Zoning designation for two parcels of City-owned property (APN 004-105-011 and APN 004-105-026) located adjacent to the railroad tracks to the west of Linden Avenue. The proposed initiative also seeks to amend the definition of the Open Space/Recreation (OSR) Land Use category of the General Plan Land Use Element to include provisions for existing parking and residential uses.

Members of the public may attend the meeting at City Hall located at 5775 Carpinteria Avenue or view the meeting live at, on Government Access Television Channel 21, or by logging into the Zoom webinar through the link provided in the agenda.
