In August of 2012, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors amended their 2012 schedule of meeting dates and locations and moved all of the remaining meetings scheduled for Santa Maria to Santa Barbara. This action was necessary due to construction activities at the Joseph Centeno Betteravia Government Building at 511 East Lakeside Parkway in Santa Maria. Construction at this site is expected to be completed in May or June of 2013.
