The Lower Mission Creek Flood Control Project (Project) has been a joint project of the Santa Barbara County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (District) and the City of Santa Barbara (City), for many years. The Project is located along Mission Creek in the City of Santa Barbara’s urban West Downtown and Waterfront neighborhoods, from Canon Perdido Street to Cabrillo Boulevard, to the ocean, a distance of about 1.3 miles. It will widen the creek Channel to increase flood flow capacity in order to reduce flooding and property damage. Local neighborhoods were catastrophically flooded in 1995 and more recently again in 1998 and 2005.
