Santa Barbara County Supervisors Vote To Try To Keep Controversial Revetments In Place To Protect Goleta Beach, Park From Ocean

It’s one of the South Coast’s most popular beaches, and parks, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year.

But, Goleta Beach County Park has also been a source of tension between Santa Barbara County, and the State Coastal Commission.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports hundreds of people were on hand as Santa Barbara County Supervisors acted on the controversial issue.
