Thanks for coming, Richard! We had more than 1000 people come to our sale at CSM yesterday - what fun! We hope to repeat the sale next year.

I'm not familiar with the process the Army Corps uses to delineate wetlands, but it seems likely that it includes, among other things, some measure of wetness. Could it be that this season's late rains might lead the Corp to delineate more wetlands than the Partners might like? Certainly seems likely that it will be drier in five weeks than it is now.
I have two questions: are the proposed ponds to be onsite or offsite? If they are on Wavecrest property, the Bolsa Chica decision wouldn't apply.
And second, how do the developers propose that a recreational trail will mitigate for habitat loss?
