S. C. Community Credit Union members fight sale to NY developer for luxury hotel!
by Build Community not Hotels Working Group
Tuesday Aug 10th, 2021 8:40 AM
Movement to stop the Santa Cruz Community Credit union from selling valuable land zoned for housing to a NY developer to build a 228 room luxury hotel. A call for credit union members to attend an online meeting Friday from 12-2 and information about the situation for non-members.
For members of the Santa Cruz Community Credit Union (and those interested in learning about the SCCU plan to sell to a luxury hotel)::

We hope that you will join us in opposing the sale of our SCCCU main branch to a New York developer to build a 6 story luxury hotel. Over 800 member/owners, signed our petition, which resulted in the Credit Union board scheduling an online membership meeting on Friday, August 13th from 12PM to 2PM! It is critical that we show up in large numbers to get the message across that we as member-owners believe that a 228 room luxury hotel with 60 parking spaces in our downtown will be a detriment to our community— occupying valuable real estate zoned for housing, clogging our streets, filling parking spaces meant to serve residents and visitors, stressing our water supply, moving profits out of state, adding carbon to our air.

In order to attend the meeting, you must be a credit union member and have registered by filling out the form at this link: https://www.scccu.org/landing-pages/special-member-meeting. There is an hour allotted at the end of the meeting for public comment. Please check the box that says that you want to speak against the hotel. It's a way to show your opposition. If you find you have nothing to say, you can always pass.

Unfortunately this “special member meeting” is scheduled during working hours, so If you aren’t able to attend, please take a few minutes to email your thoughts to feedback [at] scccu.com. And because the only way for Credit Union members to know about this meeting is by going to the website, we urge you to forward this letter to your member friends!
