Rain is expected so we're postponing!

We were so looking forward to the music and gathering in honor of the majestic trees on Lot 4 Saturday the 4th. However, with rain on the forecast, we are postponing the event so we may be fully present when we do this.

Some of us will still be there for those who miss the memo and/or for anyone wishing to come chat under an umbrella on a rainy day.

Please stay tuned for new date!

Express your support for the trees!

Visit the new Action Network page and write Letters to City Council, asking them to incorporate some of these heritage trees into the design on Lot 4: https://actionnetwork.org/letters/save-some-trees


Pop-Up Demonstration!
Saturday, March 4th, 11am to Noon
(Heavy rain cancels.)
Lot 4, Cedar Street, Santa Cruz

The City Council will make a final decision on the Heritage tree appeal at its March 14th meeting or soon thereafter. Let's ask them to save some of those trees on Lot 4! It's good for the environment, good for Downtown, good for community. Enough with the anti-tree crowd!

Presently, developers plan to cut down 9 legally protected Heritage trees once the building permit for the Library, Garage, Affordable Housing project is issued. They have made no effort to preserve any of the trees. But 2 or 3 of these trees along Cedar Street can be accommodated by slightly modifying the building design.

Please come to the demonstration in favor of Saving Some Trees on Lot 4!

Music, speakers, open mic, actions!

Express your support for the trees!

The image at top shows the project with two Heritage liquidambars that can be incorporated as part of a courtyard entrance to the Downtown Library.

Our Downtown, Our Future is participating in the Save Some Trees Coalition that is organizing the demonstration.
