Here is his most recent post about the community activists who supported the city’s purchase, but wondered if the $10M price was what they had in mind:
For a town that just blew an estimated $80 million to acquire, finance, and build a park next to the freeway, this additional expenditure will strain the coffers. But being a solutions kind of guy, I thought I’d outline an idea that could make everyone happy without losing $10 million of the taxpayers money:
Here is a comment from W.C.’s blog post that describes the history:
This entire fiasco goes back 20 years: the district trustees attended a seminar on how to turn ‘surplus’ district property into dollars. After identifying the sale of PV as their choice for district ”surplus’, the first thing they did was change the attendance boundaries to make it appear to laymen that the school attendance was plummeting. When Supt. Doug couldn’t close a deal, they retired him and went with Supt. Lane: they helped Lane out with a ‘developer’ consultant named Dee Snow whose husband, Bill Snow was on the Planning Commission: they also has Patrick Murphy and Peder Norby assigned to make a ‘deal’ happen: yes, Murphy and Norby were working for the City of Encinitas to help EUSD get around The Naylor Act and it was a reporter from the UT who had covered the Naylor Act being used in Del Mar who first brought the Naylor Act up in her news coverage.

Shapell Homes purchased the acreage for $30+ million in 2010 from the Robertson family. At the time, they said they would build:
Single-family homes ranging from 1,800 to 4,000 square feet and townhomes from about 1,400 to 1,800 square feet. A senior housing project, probably for rent, also is expected.
If you are thinking of selling a home that is close to Tamarack/Cannon and El Camino Real, you may want to consider selling this year when there is less competiton!
Here is a tour of the area:
If I lose the drone, ”too bad, you’re not getting another one.”
There was some real panic today when I lost the wi-fi connection – which also terminated the camera feed – while the drone was over the lagoon. For a moment, I was thinking about going for a swim!
This builder paid $20 million for the land in December, 2010, and have already sold over 50 homes averaging around $1M each. This site was a pile of rocks three years ago – here’s a tour of the neighborhood now:
There hasn’t been many times recently that we’ve seen a Davidson home for sale on a culdesac in Carmel Valley for low-$300s psf:
Phase 1 was released last Saturday with six homes available, and it doesn’t look like they sold any yet (the hostess didn’t know):
