Save the Pleasure Point Roadhouse

The Pleasure Point Roadhouse is an icon for the Pleasure Point surfing community. It is one of the oldest structures in our surf village. With its barn and out buildings, it is a link to our past. It was used for farming, vacationing, a roadhouse during prohibition, an early gas station, and a store. Ask for the Roadhouse to be saved for a Community Center and Park site. We need a site for a community center,a history/surf museum and many other good things. Please come and support and bring your ideas too. We support the recognition of this site as an historic resource and advocate that it be saved for these purposes. The Supervisors will hear the proposal for Historic designation again Tue, Teb 12, 2008 Go to Item 70 at http://sccounty01.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/bds/Govstream/ASP/Display/SCCB_AgendaDisplayWeb.aspMeetingDate=2/12/2008 We need to be there too.
