There’s a new web site built by a group of concerned Aptos residents and business owners working to shape the redevelopment of the Rancho del Mar Shopping Center.
The site urges visitors to sign a petition to supervisor Zach Friend on change.org. Already, over 700 people have signed the petition, which urges Zach Friend and other county supervisors reject the Safeway expansion.
The page also has a slide show which makes several proposals to shape the redevelopment of the shopping center, such as:
- Keep the Safeway store in its same location
- Keep the Safeway store at 42,000sf or smaller
- Reduce the size of the proposed gas station (18 pumps are proposed, making it the largest in Santa Cruz county)
- Retain the Aptos Cinema movie theater
The group also hosts a meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at the Aptos Grange. The next meeting date is May 13, 2014.
