UC Santa Cruz to Discuss Future Land Use During Series of Community Meetings

UC Santa Cruz has announced a series of community meetings to discuss the new proposed land use maps pertaining to the UC Santa Cruz 2040 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) (see pdf below for a slideshow of the presentation). The meetings are scheduled for 12-2pm on December 2 at the Stevenson Event Center at UCSC, 6-8pm on December 2 at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center in Santa Cruz, and 6-8pm on December 3 at the Capitola Community Center. The group Save Santa Cruz, which describes itself as "residents of Santa Cruz that work to scale growth to support our local neighborhoods, the environment and the livability of Santa Cruz" is raising awareness about the importance of attending the events.
Gary Patton, Co-Chair of Save Santa Cruz, posted the following message on Facebook:

"Here are some upcoming meetings about UCSC growth. These are definitely "Mark Your Calendar" items. Ultimately, we are told, the Univesity is immune to local control and can do whatever it wants. The current plan is to put 28,000 students at UCSC. For me, the most important thing for local residents to remember, as we hear about the University's plans, is that we DO NOT have to capitulate to the idea that we "can't do anything about it." My blog isn't titled, "We Live In A Political World" for nothing. If we care enough - and care enough to get organized - our local community can have a very significant ability to shape the future, and that does include our ability to impact the future growth of the UCSC campus."
