This is an email from Westside Neighbors sent May 10, 2024: 

Thanks to your help, the appeal of the OVO was denied by the Coastal Commission on May 9, 2024, by a vote of 8-1. A special thank you to the DeAnza Mobile Home Park Community for sending in many emails in support of the Oversized Vehicle Ordinance, and to all our members who sent in an email. The Coastal Commission staff described our email as "voluminous", and in total we have generated well over 1,000 emails in support of the OVO.

 

Even though this was a definite victory, the fact is that because of the actions of one Coastal Commissioner, Justin Cummings, who argued against the city's permit for 25 minutes, the outcome was not as good as we had hoped. He moved that the city's requested 5-year permit be limited to only a 2-year permit. Commissioner Cummings contradicted his previous statements saying his concern is "not about the homeless" but about "the summer visitors", who he apparently thinks should be able to park anywhere they want for free overnight. His questions made it appear that he did not read the staff report or our emails at all. Please don't forget this come election time, since Mr. Cummings is also "our" representative on the SC County Board of Supervisors, but his actions show that he does not represent our voice. Anyone wanting to write to Cummings can do so at this email address: justin.cummings@santacruzcountyca.gov

 

Instead of the desired 5-year permit extension, the City will now be required to appear again before the Coastal Commission in 15 months and then again in two years to review the permit. We appreciate the hard work of Lee Butler and Shebreh Kalantari-Johnson, who presented to the Coastal Commission on the City's behalf, and also express our thanks to Renee Golder and Sonja Brunner, who have also worked hard to stand up this program. We know the City's program is working not only to address neighborhood concerns, but to improve the lives of people living in their RVs by providing safe spaces to park with sanitation and social services.
