Today a dozen street artists set out, chalk in hand, to draw the proposed desal pipelines along streets in the Prospect Heights/De Laveaga Park neighborhood. They followed a City map of the proposed water transmission pipeline infrastructure that targets the east side neighborhood as part of the massive $300M seawater desalination plant system. The group supports the Yes on Measure P campaign, which if passed on the November 6 ballot, would guarantee -- as a Charter Amendment -- the right of citizens to vote on whether the City of Santa Cruz should build a $300M regional desalination plant.

Successful "Yes on Measure P" action today: Prospect Hts/DeLaveaga Park desal pipeline chalk-in


Santa Cruz -- Today a dozen street artists set out, chalk in hand, to draw the proposed desal pipelines along streets in the Prospect Heights/De Laveaga Park neighborhood.

They followed a City map of the proposed water transmission pipeline infrastructure that targets the east side neighborhood as part of the massive $300M seawater desalination plant system.

The group supports the Yes on Measure P campaign, which if passed on the November 6 ballot, would guarantee -- as a Charter Amendment -- the right of citizens to vote on whether the City of Santa Cruz should build a $300M regional desalination plant.

"This is a wake-up call, for citizens and ratepayers to see how vast and disruptive the extensive desal system also could be at the neighborhood level," said Jane Yett, spokesperson for the group.

At the same time, the members of the group distributed a flier stating, "We are chalking several key pipeline routes to make more clear the extent of outlying desal developments and impacts, not just the plant, but the land and ecosystems it would affect in Prospect Heights other sites throughout Santa Cruz and the region."

I urge all of my prospective constituents on the East Side of Santa Cruz to take heed to the environmental danger which the "Dandy Dozen" brought to the attention of your neighborhood on Sunday. Never was the "open studio" of public opinion better served.

Thanks to all.
