On April 9, 2019, the County Board of Supervisors approved the Hoop Structures Ordinance Amendment.  The new regulations take effect on May 9, 2019.


The Hoop Structures Ordinance Amendment project amended the Land Use and Development Code (LUDC) to allow and exempt hoop structures and shade structures that are 20 feet or less in height on agriculturally-zoned lands in the inland areas of the unincorporated County of Santa Barbara.  Some limitations apply, and permits are required for taller structures.

The project did not amend regulations within the Coastal Zone, where permits are required (Article II Coastal Zoning Ordinance).
