As a result of recent activity near the Windsong Apartments, there has been some discussion of green zones in Surfside.
While some aspects of the green zone areas in Surfside can be quite complex, other aspects are simple. First, a person is required by law to obtain a permit through the Municipality of Santa Cruz before starting any activity in a green zone.
Second, the green zone areas are not for sale, nor can they be sold, regardless of any sales that have occurred in the past.
Third, there is a legal requirement for communities to include green zone areas in their zoning plans.
Finally, the Surfside Property Owners Association has not taken ‘sides’ either for or against anyone involved in or expressing an opinion about the activity behind the Windsong Apartments. The original developers of Surfside had a vision of a community, which included common community areas with swimming pools, parks, clubhouses, beach front parks and other amenities.
While these have not been realized, we feel it is prudent to protect the green zones so that this may come to pass, how ever far into the future that may be.
