Santa Barbara is planning more analysis and discussion about new alcohol licenses, controls and possible limitation on serving hours.

This comes after police have released information comparing the number of liquor licenses in the area and calls for service.

Authorities broke up a large, rowdy party of drunk college students on the South Coast this weekend that led to several arrests and citations.  

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said deputies along with University of California Police officers arrived to the scene of a party on the 6500 block of Del Playa Drive in Isla Vista around 11:15 Friday night. They discovered an unruly crowd of several hundred intoxicated, college-aged people. Several were stopped and cited for alcohol violations.
