Add comment on:Strong Turnout to Protect UCSC Upper Campus Prompts LAFCO to Delay Decision
It was standing room only in the county government center for the Santa Cruz LAFCO meeting on June 6th, where over 50 community members spoke before the commission in support of protecting the forest and open space of the UC Santa Cruz upper campus from future development. During the meeting, university chancellor George Blumenthal threatened that UCSC would take legal action or withdraw the application entirely if the conditions LAFCO laid out on March 7 that limit extending water service to the north campus were imposed. After a break, commissioners John Leopold and Don Lane returned with amendments to the March 7 conditions, but ultimately LAFCO decided the next vote on the matter would be held in October.
