Hi Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors, 

I am a resident of Santa Barbara County and I'm reaching out in support of the proposal to expand the SM levee trail to Guadalupe. Personally, I'm really excited about this opportunity to invest in the community of Santa Maria and create more opportunities for folks to walk, bike, and run with family & friends. 

Currently, Santa Maria only has access to 8 miles of trails across two options, while Santa Barbara has over 130 miles of trails across 52 options. As the biggest city in the county with majority working class BIPOC residents, Santa Maria deserves better. At its core, this proposal is an issue of environmental justice. Too often, communities of color receive disproportionate investment resulting in less access to green spaces. Extending the trail is an opportunity to remedy this issue and double the access to trails. I strongly urge you to advocate for the health of families in Santa Maria.
Thank you,
