We also handed out a survey to attendees to collect feedback and ideas on rebuilding Montecito and to gather information about those who are interested in participating in the long term rebuilding process. The survey can be completed online at

We also created a Spanish version of the survey which can be completed at for anyone who wants to share that link.

I know there are a lot of people out there who can’t even begin to think about rebuilding Montecito as a whole because they are still so far away from being able to rebuild their own lives and homes.

We will be in touch soon about future meetings and events related to recovery, rebuilding, preparing, and creating in Montecito. In the meantime, please share the surveys far and wide so we can get input from the whole community.

Thank you so much, Darcel Elliott Chief of Staff First District Supervisor Das Williams (805) 568-2182
