How typical (and predictable) that the developer would threaten a takings lawsuit when they don't get their way. However, a rezone is completely at the discretion of the City Council and by not approving it, they are not denying all economic use of the property--which is the crux of takings law. The zoning still allows subdivision and a variety of uses. Just not at the density and intensity of what the developers deem to be economic use. Takings law does not guarantee that a project provide a certain profit margin for the developer. Sorry, but you don't win.

Well, if Lanny wants to talk about feeding at the public trough as he so frequently likes to...or in his particular case, having been the recipient of public services and public servants, I seem to remember his sorry butt getting rescued a number of years ago up by Cathedral Peak. Wonder if he reimbursed the County for the expense of the search, which undoubtedly included the efforts of numerous public employees and public tax dollars. Just sayin'.
