We call upon Chancellor George Blumenthal and Executive Vice Chancellor Marlene Tromp to immediately halt plans to develop the East Meadow. The UCSC campus is world-renowned for its careful, environmental planning. Its stunning beauty, in harmony with forest, meadows, vistas, and canyons, is the campus’s most distinctive feature. All of that, and over fifty years of careful stewardship, is now under threat from a plan that was hastily conceived and abruptly adopted with little consultation. We support more student housing and improved childcare facilities on campus. There are other places to build them that do not overturn UCSC’s proudest traditions.
