Local environmentalists have told the City Council that a plan to redevelop the Treasure Island mobile home park into a luxury resort is too dense, too commercial and too exclusive.
Representatives from Village Laguna and the South Laguna Civic Assn. dominated a public hearing this week. Ron Harris, the civic association president, suggested that the 30-acre property become an arboretum and conference center. It would appeal to residents and tourists but would offer more open space than a resort, he said.
