This 2008 map drafted by the City of Santa Cruz depicts proposed development areas (the colored blobs) in relation to the current dirt “fire roads” in Upper Campus. It only shows development areas which are outside of the City of Santa Cruz’s current service area. For a map of all development areas, see below.
