Saving Upper Campus at the Ballotbox

The next election could determine whether the UCSC administration will win approval for a massive expansion onto 240 acres of undeveloped forest, the upper campus.

Two years ago students, faculty and staff stalled the UCSC administration’s planned campus expansion by organizing and filling the chambers at LAFCO meetings, the government body in charge of approving water service for campus growth.

The current strategy to save upper campus is the ballot box. The Santa Cruz City Council will decide whether to continue or withdraw their support for UCSC expansion. So it makes a huge difference who is elected to the Council.
