Old Town Sidewalk Infill Project

Print

Description

The Old Town Sidewalk Improvement Program will construct a network of sidewalks along at least one side of the streets in the residential areas of Old Town. The project will assess sidewalk deficiencies, create a prioritization plan, and install sidewalk improvements north of Hollister Avenue from South Fairview Avenue to Kinman Avenue as well as Pine Avenue south of Hollister Avenue.

Purpose and Need

The project will provide for pedestrian access within Old Town Goleta by completing missing sections of sidewalk. These links will connect residents to and from Hollister Avenue to businesses and transportation lines or points south of Hollister to the commercial and light industrial areas.

Strategic Plan Goals

To maintain and improve City-wide facilities, roads and traffic circulation.
Return Old Town to the Vital Center of the City.
Maintain a safe community.

Funding Sources

The City was recently awarded an Active Transportation Planning (ATP) Grant for $2.224 million for the project. An additional $555 thousand will be applied as the local match from the Measure A local funds and Goleta Transportation Improvement Program (GTIP).

Current Phase

This project is now in the environmental phase. Public outreach will take place in 2017. Design and right-of-way are anticipated to begin in fiscal year 2017/18, with construction beginning in late 2018.
