OASIS to Host Public Meeting Looking for Input on a Countywide Trails and Recreation Plan

Santa Barbara County Planning Commissioner John Parke will be the moderator in a series of workshops this summer focusing on a county-wide recreation master plan. Parke will facilitate discussions and get feedback about potential recreation enhancements and opportunities across Santa Barbara County.    

OASIS will be the site of the Orcutt area meeting August 11, 6pm. That meeting will review recreation possibilities in the Orcutt and surroundings areas.  OASIS is located at 420 Soares in Old Town Orcutt.   

The public meetings are not official County events, however all are invited including parks and trails users, landowners, farmers, ranchers, and representatives from agricultural businesses.   

Parke said the purpose of the meetings is not to tell people what will happen, but to stimulate discussions concerning recreational possibilities “across all socio-economic backgrounds including such factors as age and physical limitations.”    

The first of several discussions will be in Los Olivos in July.
