City residents express range of serious concerns in meeting with developer

In advance of the developer’s first “community meeting” in January, our group shared information about the online session in an attempt to ensure that Santa Cruz residents were aware of the plans for this major intersection and area of the city. Required by the city, the meeting was held on Zoom because of the pandemic.

Approximately 250 city residents “zoomed” in to the meeting, on January 27. While there was a sprinkling of participants who expressed support for the proposed development, the vast majority of the speakers that night expressed great concern about the proposal’s scale, its location, and its impacts on a range of environmental issues.
