City of Goleta

The City of Goleta is preparing for the upcoming Halloween weekend by cracking down on parking in neighborhoods adjacent to Isla Vista.

City leaders say residents will get two free temporary street parking permits for each household. Only residents with valid permits will be able to park on the streets in the affected area between noon on Friday, October 31 and Sunday, November 2 at 6 a.m.

Permits will be delivered by the USPS before October 27, according to the City of Goleta.  Those who do not receive their permit are asked to contact the Neighborhood Services Department at (805) 961-7556 to make arrangements for a replacement.

Vehicles without permits will be cited and towed at the owner's expense.

Law enforcement officers and tow trucks are expected to be visible throughout the weekend during the enforcement period, but the city says no road access will be restricted.

The parking lots at Girsh Park, the Albertsons Shopping Center and Camino Real Marketplace will be open to the public during daylight hours only.
