    I assume special interest payments will be set up? The next item will be the new community complaining of all the motorcycle noise from a establishment that has been in place for years.

    There are crooked sobs who would build condos over their mama’s grave if it made them a few bucks. Montana here I come.

    Amazing! “…were consistent with the General Plan…” Wow! It gutted the General Plan and the specific plan inorder to approve this project. Wow! It’s like Alice in Wonderland.
    And another of Campbell’s favors-for-cronies, kick-your-constituents-in-the-teeth-as-you-head-out-the-door projects is St. Michael’s Abbey’s institutional destruction of open space and natural resources in tiny Silverado Canyon.

    “Its actions and findings were supported by substantial evidence,
    were not arbitrary or capricious, and were consistent with the General
    Plan,”

    Accurate – up to a point. The County’s actions were based on Crooked Bill Campbell’s lust to do lots of big favors going out the door, and were thus not arbitrary at all. The General Plan and the FTSP were officially gutted to accommodate the specific development – just like Campbell did for the Catholic Church development in North Tustin. That one was won on appeal, too, after an initial judicial defeat.

    The developer’s lobbyist was the egregious Lyle Overby who I believe is (or was) a member of the Voice of OC’s editorial contributors.

    P.S. I wonder if anybody bothered to tell their Honors that the County itself was one of the beneficiaries of the relaxation of the Specific Plan requirements. It owns 100 acres of terrain at the north side of the FTSP – a taxpayer bailout of a land speculator orchestrated by – you guessed it – Bill Campbell.
