Former LandWatch Board Member Passes
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of former LandWatch Board member Kenneth Gray. Ken was an exceptional leader taking on complex habitat restoration and coastal access projects while at California State Parks. He was an active member of the community and founded Marina 2020 Vision which has changed the history and direction of the community. We are eternally thankful for his efforts. (10.27.14)

LandWatch Supports Measure Q
This small, 1/8¢ special sales tax will create a stable source of local funding used exclusively to protect transit services for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities. LandWatch supports Measure Q to protect public transit services.

Foreclosure Lawsuit on Sand City Eco-Resort
It seems the Sand City eco-resort is plagued with more issues, including a foreclosure lawsuit and delays in the permit issuance. The Coastal Commission sent a letter (in late August) stating that 28 plan modifications and clarifications need to occur before the permit is issued. The foreclosure lawsuit is from the lender Fourth Third LLC alleging the developer's company defaulted on a $29.5 million loan balance. (09.18.14)

Supervisors Give Harper Canyon Time for Study
In May the Board of Supervisors allowed time for the Harper Canyon developer to review the additional over-draft potential of the Toro acquifer. Though the staff presented a resolution for denial of the project as it will require mining to access water, making it inconsistent with the General Plan. The project will be heard again December 2 by the Board. (09.05.14)
