Stephen Sutherland, the designer of the Regent Newport Beach Resort at Marinapark, has decided to hold off on his plans for at least two years so as not to rush his project through the Newport Beach Planning Commission and City Council to present it to the voters. Originally, the project aimed for a Greenlight vote in November. On Wednesday, Assistant City Editor James Meier sat down with Sutherland at his Campus Drive office near John Wayne Airport to discuss the postponement and his plans for the interim.

Background search not such a bad thing I'm confused by your continued editorial harping on "personal attacks" being made on the promoter of the Marinapark resort hotel, Stephen Sutherland. The questions I've heard people raise don't sound personal at all. They seem to relate to his background and qualifications to do what he says he wants to do. Apparently, the city didn't think it necessary to ask these questions before officials decided to do business with him. Shouldn't somebody be concerned with his education, experience, track record and similar matters?

Since it was proposed, we have been firm in our insistence that the dangers of Newport Beach's Greenlight law outweigh its benefits and good intentions. Ballot-box lawmaking is a principle we simply can't endorse, if only for fear of the "tyranny of the majority." But that doesn't mean we can't see beneficial effects from Greenlight. And one we weren't expecting was clearly on display last weekend as developer Stephen Sutherland hit the streets of Balboa Peninsula to garner support for his proposed 147-room luxury resort at the Marinapark mobile home park, city-owned land that also is home to the American Legion Hall.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- What should have been a routine step in the process for the developer of a 147-room luxury resort instead left that project dangling by a thread at Tuesday's City Council meeting until council members voted 4 to 3 to allow the developer to begin gathering information on the project's effects on traffic and the environment. More than a dozen residents spoke out against the project. "It disgusts me," said Councilman Gary Adams, who joined council members Norma Glover and Dennis O'Neil in opposing the request.

Newport Beach officials said Friday that they've met all their obligations to hotel designer Stephen Sutherland and are demanding Sutherland pay $21,453 for an environmental report on his aborted plans for a resort at Marinapark. The city made those assertions in response to a lawsuit Sutherland filed in Orange County Superior Court in February. The suit asks for $1 million plus damages and the right to finish developing the 110-room resort, planned for a city-owned parcel on the Balboa Peninsula that residents and officials have haggled over for years.

Stephen Sutherland I would like to respond to Jenny Bioche's letter on Friday (Readers Respond, "A ballot before a Marinapark hotel"). Over the past four years, I have been meeting with the directors of the Community Services Department for the city of Newport Beach. It has always been a priority of mine to not just retain the current programs the city offers to our kids, but to improve these great programs. Bioche specifically mentioned the "Sailing and Tennis Camp."

Alicia Robinson Time finally may be running out for mobile-home park residents at Marinapark. The Newport Beach City Council will decide, possibly at its May 10 meeting, whether to formally move toward closing the mobile-home park. Councilman Tod Ridgeway on Tuesday told an ad hoc committee exploring options for Marinapark that he will bring the park closure issue to the council soon. The residents could be asked to leave in as soon as a year.

Rehab houses are still debatable to some I am a resident on the Balboa Peninsula and would like to respond to the recent rehabilitation house debate. Residents of the peninsula, such as myself, are extremely concerned with the lack of planning and regulation of these centers by the city of Newport Beach. We appreciate and support efforts for recovery, associated with drug addiction. We also support the city establishing a plan for reasonable accommodation, with appropriate number of such centers in appropriate locations.

Stephen Sutherland Greenlight Committee member Tom Billings has shown his true color; anti-growth. In Billings recent Letter to the Editor ("Hotel idea for peninsula lacks potential for success," Jan. 25), he fails to state his expertise in the hotel business or for that matter, any business. As a businessman that has for the past years been appointed as co-chairperson to the National Republican Congressional Committees Business Advisory Council and named by that committee as the 2001 Business Man of the Year for the State of California, I disagree.

With the beach, there's no need for more parks The Balboa Peninsula is in need of a shot in the arm. We've had years of misguided slow-growth or no-growth, and the peninsula has become badly neglected and run down. I'm a long-term Balboa Peninsula resident and the former owner of Studio Cafe. I strongly support the Stephen Sutherland hotel project at Marinapark. A luxury hotel will do wonders for the area, pay big taxes and improve property values. Why choose a mobile-home park over a hotel?

Prudential teams with hotel designer to develop, market unique architectural properties.Newport Beach hotel designer Stephen Sutherland is working with Prudential California Realty to start a new real estate division under Prudential's banner. The venture would focus on making deals for architecturally-unique homes. Sutherland has been tapped to be the executive director for Prudential's new unit, which has been dubbed the "Architectural Collection Division." He is in the process of launching the new division, which so far has taken about two years to set up. In Newport Beach, Sutherland may be best known for his efforts to build a resort hotel on the Marinapark property, which is on the Balboa Peninsula.

A year ago, a proposed resort for the Marinapark site on Balboa Peninsula went before voters, who adamantly denied the plan by voting it down 67% to 33%. Now, the developer of the plan, Stephen Sutherland, wants another chance. He's filed a claim against the city of Newport Beach -- the required first step to suing the city, which he says he's intent to do -- for $1 million and, more importantly he says, to get additional time to develop his resort, time that he believes is owed him. And sometime during the 18 months he maintains he has, Sutherland says he will bring his resort plan back to a vote.

Deirdre Newman Stephen Sutherland relishes a new challenge, and the controversy over his Marinapark hotel project is just the latest crucible he says he's had to contend with. Sutherland has not backed down from promoting his project as the ideal development of the Balboa Peninsula site after being relentlessly attacked by opponents who don't want the property's zoning changed from recreation and open space. "My mom collected early American antiques, and one of the pieces she had was an old 1800 school desk ... and on the side was some iron work and the words, 'strive and win,'" Sutherland said.

S.J. CAHN I seem to be the rare creature in Newport Beach conflicted about the Measure L debate. My column last week on the issue gathered an expected reaction. But I'm happy to report that, other than one unprintable voicemail, the responses, even when they disagreed, were respectful. OK, unless the person responding was somehow involved in the pro-hotel camp, the responses all were anti-hotel and, as a result, anti-me. Of course, I never came out pro-hotel.

Deirdre Newman Uncertainty about proposed lease terms for the Marinapark hotel project overshadowed the City Council's consideration of the agreement Tuesday. As of press time, no vote had been taken at Tuesday's council meeting, but members were leaning toward postponing action on terms between the city and the developer until those terms had been tweaked. The terms would guide negotiations for a ground lease of the luxury hotel resort, planned for the Balboa Peninsula, if voters approve Measure L in November.
