It is old, or if you prefer "out-of-date" as much has happened since it 
was posted including 1000 residents signing a petition and lawsuit.
The pilots view has nothing to do with the statements, only that it 
happens to be something that I receive mail about. It is Kalifornia 
after all.

My point was, in this case the developer had the permits and still got 
burned. They should have legal recourse, but it's doubtful they'll 
recoup any losses via that route.
As I've said before, if the permits are available one should certainly 
use them but they give no guarantee even from disgruntled neighbors .

I get the feeling, in general, we're saying the same things but in 
different words.
