UCSC senior Irene O’Connell and other artists finish their mural of the Upper Campus water tanks that criticize the proposed expansion under the Long Range Development Plan.
The Santa Cruz Local Agency Formation Commission has rescheduled a public hearing to help determine whether or not UCSC can expand their water and sewage services into Upper Campus. If the extension is approved, the campus will move forward with their planned construction of Upper Campus.
At a Wednesday hearing of the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), the board of commissioners chose to delay any voting on UCSC’s proposed Long Range Development Plan (LRDP). Students, residents, professors and administrators all spoke about the proposed plan, and its environmental impact on the Upper Campus region.
