Our Connection to the Sea

SCPD Community Room, 155 Center St, Santa Cruz
10 am Social  – 10:30 Program
Free Admission

Every two years, voters in the City of Santa Cruz, Live Oak, Soquel, the north coast and surrounding areas elect members of the Santa Cruz Port Commission who govern a harbor that was built with local tax dollars, along with state and federal funds, over 50 years ago. The local tax money is gone but the harbor continues to play a central role in our community’s economy and its identity, not to mention the fact that it’s home to many environmental non-profits, is a flash point for some controversies and is base camp for lots of ocean recreation.

O’Neill Sea Odyssey Executive Director, Dan Haifley will discuss the harbor, its history and its role in our politics at our May 21st meeting at 10 am in the SCPD Community Room.
