A group dedicated to making our town stronger and more resilient
We are a local chapter of the national Strong Towns organization, an education and advocacy-focused group which aims to work closely with local officials to promote and enact policy which embodies the urban planning principles necessary for resilient and financially sustainable town design.
Our chapter’s mission mirrors that of the nation-wide Strong Towns organization:
We advocate for Santa Barbara/Goleta to be safe, livable, and inviting.
In pursuit of this goal, we work to elevate local government to be the highest level of collaboration for members of the community to build a prosperous place.
We seek an end to the mandates and subsidies that cause productive land to be used for motor vehicle storage and, in tandem, work to establish a pattern of development and a transportation network that prioritizes pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users.
