  • Santa Cruz: City Camp planning Santa Cruz: When Ruthie and I met with Scott to plan the citycamp, there was a question of what the venue was like. Ruthie suggested we walk over to the venue (NextSpace). While there we met with the founder Iris who turned out to have extensive community resources. Scott had never been NextSpace and never met Iris. On the walk back he thanked Ruthie and said he should leave city hall more and talk to ppl more.
  • Santa Cruz: In Santa Cruze there is a 5% admission Tax per a ticket sold. This fee is supposed to be applied to yoga casses and gym memberships. The rule is not enforced but people are told about the law and told they must comply. In our research everyone in city hall thinks this tax is harsh. It was brought up to Peter. He said he would bring it before city council and try to get the code altered to exclude fitness.
  • Santa Cruz: City Hall Campus Map: Working on the map at the onset was a great way to get to know Santa Cruz
  • Santa Cruz: Bike Lockers: Crystal said she was inspired that I was able to get a color chosen let alone 4 bikes painted.
