RIP Mr. Wysocki,
and another inflamatory assenine headline from The Independent....its not like the ladder or the 1' swell combination actually killed him....it was a mishap, a tragic accident, not a killing.

Eckerman,.....Crystal Cove is, indeed, an example of what you describe as California Beach Ecclectic Architecture, however, I'd hardly say the structures and homes there have been 'preserved'.
In fact, the leases were expropriated by the State of California, who had its eyes on turning the community into a for profit hotel. The houses, some of which had been built, maintained and loved by their families for generations, have been turned into ADA Compliant, cutsie, guest villas, operated under rules and regulations of the over reaching, omnipotent state park system of California....
If you call that preservation, fine, but I call it expropriation

I think Slick Rick has pretty much proven he's nothing but a wanker, with the Miramar and pretty much everything except The Grove as it exists today. He's a one hit wonder.
I think its time for the county to move on...stop negotiating with him....no more deals, no more support. Hold his feet to the fire and treat him like the rest of us, and hopefully force him to move on...and sell it to someone who knows how to build a hotel
That might be Ty Warner, or it might be Conrad Hilton for all I care, but put the squeeze on Rick and let's be done with it.

just keep the damn left hand ramps, which minimizes the impact on the surroundings, and uses less real estate, and reduce the speed limit to 55 through that stretch as a compromise to safety. It will be fine. Caltrans and everyone using 101 needs to recognize that, like it or not, this is a uniquely beautiful corridor which needs to be preserved...this is not san bernadino...deal with it.

This is a nice story, and a tasteful and sensitive remodel; it's a pity to think how the same vision (which was part of the original Shrager plan) could have played out at The Miramar....and now we're stuck with The Not so Great Caruso's disaster....

I have a small house, which I rent, on the beach. I collect and pay the 10% TOT tax to the county. When I renovate the house, make improvements spending hard earned dollars, (not somebody else's money) I never get a rebate. Why should he?

The county refusing this deal means you need to it 15mm more equity in That's chump change for Caruso affiliated. Probably a month of net revenues at the Grove
There's no reason you should get special treatment.
Time for you to build it knowing what you knew when you bought it or take your lumps and move on
Go back to LA guys. It's time. We're tired of your BS

This is just an excuse for the Enviro-Nazis to restrict people from beaches, lakes, streams and mountains and herd them into prescribed parklettes, keep them in their homes, or in their cubbies where they belong.
There is absolutely nothing endangered about the plover, and even if there was, what do we, as a society value more, human rights to freedom, or the existence of a timid, stupid little bird?
