Costa Mesa City Council candidate Chris Bunyan won his first environmental endorsement of his campaign from the Sierra Club over the weekend. The national organization recognized Bunyan for his fervent work defending Banning Ranch, a 400-acre parcel of coastal land that he wants to see left as open space for the enjoyment of community members. “It’s my first major endorsement, so it feels good. It shows that the Banning Ranch issue and others involving the environment in the community are catching,” Bunyan said.

The 600 people who showed up at the State Parks Department's Jan. 18 "informational" meeting on plans for the historic district clearly rejected the resort alternative. "No resort" was the cry. They cheered loudest at the news that developer Michael Freed's right to develop the resort remains "subject to all permits and approvals not yet had or obtained" -- a contract without the needed approvals is only paper. A stand-up ovation followed the challenge to Freed to exercise his contract option to terminate the ill-conceived resort contract after failing to obtain any of the appropriate approvals in the three years since its signing.

Paul Clinton CORONA DEL MAR -- Facing a hostile crowd, developer Michael Freed tried to describe Thursday night where on the beach he would put some of the amenities of his luxury resort project for Crystal Cove. "Put it in Riverside," one man yelled. The California Parks and Recreation Department held the public meeting Thursday to inform community members about the status of Freed's project, a resort that has yet to undergo public review. State parks officials joined Freed at Corona del Mar's Lincoln Elementary School, where more than 600 people crammed into an auditorium to listen and voice their opinions.
