A source with the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors says it is planning to appeal the planning commission approval. The outlying cities of Salinas and Hollister also have indicated that they may prepare appeals, along with the Association of Bay Area Governments, the Sierra Club, Audubon Society and Monterey Landwater.

The deadline for filing appeals is Tuesday, and the project goes before city council officials on Oct. 24.
