Protect the Ohlone village and burial site at Branciforte Creek


We implore the City of Santa Cruz to honor the wishes of Ohlone descendant Ann Marie Sayers by taking action to permanently protect the ancient village and burial site on the Knoll at Branciforte Creek (5 Isbel Dr.) KB Home currently plans to build seven homes, driveways and a new road within the known 6,000 year old cultural and archaeological site. Out of respect for the original people of this land, the sacredness of a burial ground, and the rich cultural and historical value of the area, we ask that you not allow any more digging or construction to occur on the Knoll. Thank you.
