Supervisors’  vision for the Midcoast: double the number of houses (and cars)

November 28, 2005
This subcommittee of two grossly departed from the county Planning Commission's report, which in itself was the result of a two-year series of public hearings involving hundreds of citizens. The full board of supervisors needs to understand that this action is ill-conceived and undemocratic. In addition, I can't see how the Coastal Commissison would ever approve these ad hoc findings, particualry when the Planning Commission clearly laid out a more reasoned alternative.

Did a developer steal this woman’s camera?

At the very least, this incident points to a lack of oversite of this area and may help prevent such actions from happening again. - Jack McCarthy
