City being overbuilt

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 1/17/14

Marinka Willig questions whether there is enough water for new construction and I agree. Why does Santa Cruz OK new construction, for example the Hyatt hotel, at this time? In addition, residents continue to apply for permits to build second units in their backyards. Maybe everyone should wait to see what the future holds concerning our water supply. A desalination plant could be one solution if the City Council and the Planning Commission insist on allowing Santa Cruz to be overbuilt.
