Central Santa Barbara offers a meaningful opportunity for interested people to examine how the architecture at that time was introduced. The design of buildings, and details telling the relation each building had with the historical aesthetics of that phase is also helpful when examining the Hispanic architecture. For example, a roof design has a colonial influence that can also be seen in colonial cities such as Cartagena, Mompox or San Juan in Puerto Rico. Santa Barbara has put in a lot of efforts to grow its pledge towards the architectural conservation. New laws were invented to cut the detrimental effect of new constructions on the agreement of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. Latest constructions, mainly in El Pueblo Viejo, must follow firm city guidelines and regulations to moderate a probable incompatibility with the historic architecture. When in Santa Barbara, Kenny Slaught advocates the observation of remarkable efforts that the city has made to add to the conservancy of the stunning architecture, even if this does not express the American trend that came about in the area as an effect of the British presence in the area that mostly influenced how local architecture arose.
