Goleta, CA – “Surfrider Foundation Santa Barbara Chapter is proud to have been chosen as the recipient of a very generous $5000 contribution from Westar Associates,” says Dr. Mark Morey, Chapter Chair, Surfrider Foundation Santa Barbara Chapter. “Westar's Hollister Village is a perfect example of the sort of responsible ‘green’ developments that our chapter has pushed so hard for and fought with so many other projects that failed to recognize the environmental and economic benefits that can go hand in hand with good will and good planning.
