Sand City Continues to Face Challenges
Troubles continue on the Sand City eco-resort. As you may recall the developer Ed Ghandour, according to his lender, has defaulted on a loan and filed a foreclosure notice.

In the meantime, the developer has yet to meet critical plan elements for Coastal Commission approval. (11.21.14)
