Summer 2023 Update from the President

Jul 13, 2023

Hello Friends of State Street,

We are all volunteers who love Santa Barbara, State Street and its potential to become a vital, vibrant pedestrian friendly promenade. We’ve been busy and we’re just getting started!

This summer’s big news:

The Santa Barbara city council voted to approve extending the closure of State Street to cars until 2026. Click here for the full story.

We’re growing! Can we count on you?

We have three areas of opportunity available in this important and historic period in our city – the CREATESTATE Master Planning Process. We’d love to have your participation! Scroll down to submit your contact details.

Join our Band of Friends: We call the band back together whenever we have hands-on projects.  (We feed you, too!) For example, we have several projects coming up in 2023. If you’re able to volunteer to help out, usually on a Saturday morning, we’ll email a call to action when you’re needed.

If you have creative talent in any of these areas, we’d love to hear from you: Photography, video, model building, graphic design, social media, researching, data analysis, accountant.

We are seeking private Founding and Corporate Sponsorships. If you or your business is interested in this, please reach out using the form below.

We are excited for what the future holds.

Kind regards,
President Sharon Rich
