• Volunteers Needed for the 2022 Homeless Point-In-Time Count -Each year, the County Community Services Department facilitates a Point in Time Count of people experiencing homelessness throughout the county. The effort will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, January 26. Teams of volunteers will canvas assigned routes throughout the county and briefly document who is experiencing homelessness. This information is used to plan local homeless assistance systems, justify funding, and raise public awareness. Volunteers will be trained to help count on the survey day. To volunteer, please sign up at https://countyofsb.pointintime.info.

  • Public Notice Regarding Adopted County Supervisorial District Map - On December 13, the Citizens Independent Redistricting Commission adopted its final preferred supervisorial district map that will go into effect on January 13, 2022. Until the new District and Political maps can be accessed on the County Surveyor and Elections websites, the public can review the adopted changes and check the district location of their address. To do so, click on the interactive adopted map linked above and enter an address in the search window. To compare and contrast the current and newly adopted boundaries, add the layer called "Current Plan." For information about the county redistricting process, past agendas and draft maps submitted by the public, please go to www.DrawSantaBarbaraCounty.org or send your questions to redistricting@countyofsb.org
