GOLETA, Calif. - The Goleta Planning Commission will discuss the city's train depot project at the December 9 meeting, rather than November 18 as previously scheduled.

The Master Plan entails developing the site next to the existing Amtrak platform on South La Patera Lane.

The design includes a full-service station that will improve connections to bus transit, and accommodate transit service to/from the Santa Barbara Airport and UCSB, along with new bike and pedestrian facilities.

City officials are hoping the new station will increase ridership numbers.

At least $13 million dollars in funding earmarked through the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) will help pay for the new Goleta train depot.

Monday's meeting will be held at the Goleta City Council at 130 Cremona Street, Suite B. 

If you are not able to attend in person, you can watch the meeting on Channel 19 or on the City's website.
