With Halloween right around the corner, UC Santa Barbara already is embarking on plans aimed at ensuring another safe and locals-only celebration.

It’s a campuswide effort with UCSB students again taking a lead role, working together to dissuade out-of-town visitors and provide alternative events for their peers between Oct. 28 and 31.

As it has the past two years, the Associated Students Program Board will again put on a major concert at the UCSB Events Center, bringing in a big-name act at a small ticket price, with attendance allowed only for UCSB students. The headliner has yet to be announced.

Students are also a driving force in the many other special events and efforts planned on campus and in I.V. for the weekend, from roller skating to film screenings to the student-created, student-staffed UCIV, which sends volunteers into Isla Vista to act as liaisons between the community and law enforcement.

“Every year Halloween becomes more and more a local event that is less attractive to out-of-towners,” said Debbie Fleming, UCSB’s assistant vice chancellor for student affairs. “Students deserve a lot of credit for embracing and endorsing a ‘keep it local and safe’ message and, by walking away from potentially unsafe situations, for voting with their feet for the great alternative events and concerts being provided by the Associated Students Program Board, the university and the community of Isla Vista.”

As in years past, a number of restrictions will be in place at UCSB, in Isla Vista and in the neighboring community. On campus, parking will be restricted between 5 pm.

Friday, Oct. 28, and 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, and again from 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, to 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 30. Only vehicles with valid permits will be allowed to park on campus during these times. The restrictions will cease between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday to allow for normal business operations. Daily permits will expire at midnight Friday, Oct. 28, and midnight Saturday, Oct. 29.

Also as in previous years, some campus parking locations will be subject to closure and limited access to support enhanced safety and security measures. Checkpoints will also be in place on all roads entering campus, and unauthorized vehicles will be denied access. More information is available via UCSB Transportation & Parking Services.

In addition, roadblocks will be in place at six intersections in Isla Vista between 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, and 6 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1. The blockades will prevent vehicle access to the 6500-6800 blocks of Del Playa, Sabado Tarde and Trigo roads.

Further, the festival ordinance prohibiting amplified music at residences will be in place from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. each day between Wednesday, Oct. 26, and Tuesday, Nov. 1. Emergency first aid for the public will be available at Embarcadero Loop Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29, from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.

In other restrictions, out-of-town visitors will not be permitted to park in local Goleta neighborhoods or in area public lots, such as Camino Real Marketplace, Girsh Park, K-Mart, University Village Plaza, Fairview Center or Calle Real Center. Cars parked in violation will be towed.
