Coastal Commission to decide on massive OC development

Hosted by

The fate of a large piece of undeveloped land along California’s coastline will be decided Wednesday. The California Coastal Commission will vote on whether a company – Newport Banning Ranch LLC – can build hundreds of homes, a hotel, and shops along the Pacific Ocean in Orange County. Environmentalists say the land is too precious to build on because it’s a wetland habitat for owls and other animals.
