Tue Jun 26 2012 (Updated 06/27/12)LAFCO Delays Decision on UC Santa Cruz Water Service Expansion
Tue Jun 26 2012 (Updated 06/27/12)Strong Turnout by Public to Protect UCSC Upper Campus From Development
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 its application entirely if the conditions LAFCO laid out on March 7th 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 7th conditions, but ultimately LAFCO decided the next vote on the matter would be held in October.
