The County of Santa Cruz has pending plans to commercially develop the now vacant land of Aptos Village. The area planned for development is the open space between the Post Office and Aptos Creek Rd. The commercial development will include a combination of retail, office, and residential.
As soon as summer of 2013 this land will be cleared and construction will begin. This means that our community will lose its pump track and the world-famous Post Office dirt jumps. Fortunately, the Aptos Village Plan has incorporated an “active public recreational use area”. The planning board sees the community’s need for a designated recreation area and is considering a bike or skate park. The proposed area is located just north of the current pump track.
Aptos needs your support in expressing the importance of using this designated recreation space for a new bike park!!
Please sign this petition to show you support. It will be submitted to the County of Santa Cruz to reinforce the need of a bike park in Aptos.
