A Community Housing Meeting at Temple Beth-El in Aptos is to be held on Thursday, March 12, and two other locations in the coming weeks. The Santa Cruz County Housing Advisory Commission is holding community discussions about updates to the Santa Cruz County Housing Element, as required every several years by California law.
The reason for these meetings is to talk about programs and policies that could address issues that affect the cost, type, location, and availability of housing to serve the variety of needs of the people of Santa Cruz County.
There are three meetings scheduled to take place, the first of which is today:
- Wednesday, March 4th, 3:30 – 5:00 pm
Simpkins Family Swim Center, Community Room A
979 7th Ave, Santa Cruz
- Thursday March 12th , 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Temple Beth El Community Room
3055 Porter Gulch Road, Aptos
- Monday, March 16th, 6:30 – 8:00pm
Watsonville Civic Plaza Community Room
250 Main Street, Watsonville
Many Aptos residents are concerned with housing development, especially affordable housing throughout our community and in particular projects such as the Aptos Village redevelopment. Anyone in the community who shares these concerns is encouraged to come and give input at these very important meetings which will shape our community for years to come.
