Demonstrate Your Support
VALLEJO, CALIFORNIA - Progress may be in the works as the Protect Glen Cove Committee asks for supporters to attend the meeting of the board of directors of the Greater Vallejo Recreation District on Thursday, July 14.
The Committee is asking that supporters arrive at 6:00 pm sharp in front of the Greater Vallejo Recreation District's building prior to the meeting.
At issue is the Greater Vallejo Recreation District's plan to construct two toilets and put in 15 parking spaces at Sogorea Te, which is a sacred burial site, commonly known as Glen Cove. Vallejo is located 25 miles from San Francisco.
Representatives of the Cortina and Yocha Dehe tribes will be present to discuss proposals with Greater Vallejo Recreation District regarding the future of Glen Cove, and Greater Vallejo Recreation District board members will discuss " action regarding the construction of the Glen Cove Nature Area".
The Protect Glen Cove Committee is requesting that people attend this meeting in order to express support for a binding agreement that will meaningfully protect all 15 acres of the Glen Cove sacred burial grounds.
The Committee that has occupied the site for the past twelve weeks is in support of a cultural easement or other agreement that would stop plans for a parking lot and toilets and would prevent bulldozing on the West side of the cove.
Greater Vallejo Recreation District headquarters is located at 395 Amador St. in Vallejo. See prepared directions below:
From I-80 in either direction, take exit 29A for Sonoma Blvd/CA-29 and merge on to Sonoma Blvd. Turn right onto Solano Ave, then left onto Amador Street. GVRD will be on the left at 395 Amador.
