S.C. H.O.T. Committee Meeting

Our Housing, Open space and Transportation (H.O.T.) Committee meetings are open to all, and all who come are welcome to comment about issues of concern to them.

The issues we'd like your input on are HOV lanes, County Oil Production Tax and proposed DOGGR Fracking Regulations:

High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes on Highway 101 in the Summerland through Montecito area. Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) has scheduled a decision on this for January 16. SBCAG is considering eliminating the HOV designation for the congested northernmost four miles of the project. This could lead to a showdown with CalTrans that could scuttle the highway-widening project that is meant to relieve the bottleneck on 101. SB CAN and other groups, including CalTrans, have expressed opposition eliminating HOV lanes.

County Oil Production Tax. The Board of Supervisors has scheduled a decision on this for January 21. To see the County Grand Jury Report on the issue, click here.

Fracking Regulations. The California Department of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) will present its proposed fracking regulations during a hearing scheduled for January 13 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room in Santa Maria.

Hope to see you this week!
