Tonight, the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County will be sponsoring a public meeting to gather input from the community on the ways in which the CEMEX Redwoods property could be opened to the public for recreational, educational and research activities.

With over 300 people expected to attend, I’m looking forward to a good discussion and hope to consider many ideas for how best to share this beautiful place with the public while still protecting the values that make it so precious.

With so many important goals for the property, and so many people who feel a connection to it, there will surely be differences of opinion.  We hope that tomorrow’s meeting will provide a forum for those differences to be heard, and for anyone who cares about the future of CEMEX Redwoods to have a chance to speak their mind.

The meeting will be held at the Hotel Paradox at 611 Ocean Street, Santa Cruz, from 6:30-8:30 PM this evening, March 26th.  Interested in attending?  Sign up online.

If you are unable to attend in person, but would still like your opinion heard, please take the access survey.
