image Landlords in Santa Cruz Step Up Their Misinformation Campaign Against Measure M 480_darius_mohsenin_lies_about_measure_m_rent_control_in_santa_cruz_1.jpg by YES on M: Santa Cruz for Rent Control

Over the last week, a number of banners have appeared on buildings owned by Darius Mohsenin, a landlord with dozens of properties fr...

The stalling tactic is the latest in an eleven-year struggle over the fate of a pesticide known to cause autism, ADHD and IQ loss. Health advocates in California, including many from the Monterey Bay region, are now renewing their call ...

image No Rezoning for Condos on Ocean St. Extension: No Public Pain for Private Gain 480_ocean_street_extension_santa_cruz_1.jpg by Ocean Street Extension Neighborhood Assoc.
We do not support amending the Santa Cruz General Plan to rezone 1930 Ocean Street Extension. A 40-unit condo project by the cemetery on a rural, dead-end street, far from bus lines and city center goes against the city General Plan to concentrate housing near essential services & transportation for walking/biking & reducing car trips. The problem is at crisis point. Especially dangerous is the Ocean St./Graham Hill Rd/Hwy 1&17 bottleneck. Please sign and share the petition: https://www.chang...
