Protesters arrived at the San Marcos Foothill Preserve just before 5 a.m. Thursday as bulldozers approached to begin carving a road for a development called The Terrace at San Marcos Preserve.
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office had been monitoring the development site since 9 p.m. Wednesday and arrested eight protestors and issued one citation, according to Raquel Zick, sheriff’s spokeswoman.
A group known as Save San Marcos Foothills, which is raising money to purchase the affected land, would like to pause construction in time for it to buy the land.
