It appears that Palo Alto developer Chop Keenan is in for a windfall, based on this last week's court ruling.
Here's a precursor story, from 2005
Past and present Half Moon Bay policy makers have let their city become developed in a way that is disgraceful, given the pristine beauty of the Half Moon Bay Coastline. It appears that their misguided efforts to frustrate a developer (not the first time this has been done) by nefarious means has finally come to payback. What a sad legacy.
Hopefully, Mr. Keenan will find a way to work this out in a way that doesn't cause extreme duress for the City Of Half Moon Bay.
This is what happens when amateurs are placed in policy making positions. Half Moon Bay can do better than its current policy making crowd.
