The serene isolation and beauty of Arana Gulch is threatened by two miles of Eight foot wide paved trails and a suspension bridge over hagemann gulch. As one of santa cruz's last untouched wilderness areas we need to keep it free of roads! It is a beautiful escape from our modern suburban lives and can be easily accessed by anyone. Bikes can be easily ridden through right now and bike paths if needed could be put through the already developed harbor adjacent to arana gulch. It does not cause any biker more than five minutes inconvienence to save this undeveloped land. Also the Native Endangered Tarplant is threatened by this development. I have spent my childhood (and still am) exploring The cracks and crevices of this ountouched land and I would want future generations to have that experience too. This is Our Community we need to act NOW!!!

Come to the city council meeting on tues 7/11 at 7pm at city council chambers 809 center st

Call 420-5017 and tell the city council to vote no on paving greenbelt land and no on the bikepath

Rumors of talks of paving pogonip bike trails are already emerging don't let this precedent be set.

Thisd is not a political issue it is a community issue and it is for the good of our future please support it in whatever way you can. The best way to show your support is to go out and enjoy yourself.
