City Council members gave Centex Development Co. approval this week to move ahead with plans to build 562 more homes and a new high school site on a portion of the 1,090-acre Forster Ranch subdivision. The preliminary approval of the changes to the Forster Ranch General Plan by the City Council is only the first of many time-consuming steps to come, City Manager Michael W. Parness said.

A former San Clemente planning commissioner agreed Friday to pay $7,000 to settle a conflict-of-interest lawsuit filed by the district attorney's office that accused him of voting on matters in which he stood to make a financial gain. The suit, which was filed just before the settlement was reached, alleged that former commissioner Harold Joseph voted in favor of development projects involving Centex Corp., a company in which he held 1,000 shares of stock worth more than $30,000.

The Orange County district attorney's office said Thursday that it is investigating a possible conflict of interest involving a planning commissioner who voted to allow the building of subdivisions while reportedly holding a financial interest in the development firm. Deputy Dist. Atty. Donna Crandall confirmed Thursday that her office is looking into Harold Joseph's connection to Dallas-based Centex Development Corp., but declined to comment further.

A city planning commissioner acknowledged Friday that he held stock in a land development company at the same time that he voted in favor of plans for three San Clemente housing projects owned by the firm. But Commissioner Harold Joseph said he sold the stock last month when City Clerk Myrna Erway reviewed his state-required financial disclosure statement and pointed out the apparent conflict of interest.

Centex Development Co. in Dallas has announced that it bought 1,077 acres of the 1,770-acre Forster Ranch in San Clemente for $50 million. The deal was expected. Selling was Estrella Properties. Centex said it will build 2,200 houses on the land, mostly single-family homes, and will use 65 acres for commercial buildings. That plan has already been approved under a special development agreement with the city.

The San Clemente City Council voted unanimously Monday night to let Hal Joseph remain on the Planning Commission after hearing a city attorney's opinion that his role in bringing a developer to a project in the city would result in only a temporary conflict of interest. City Councilman Tom Lorch said the question of Joseph's removal from the Planning Commission was "an emotional issue . . . and something we still don't have all the facts on."

The San Clemente City Council tentatively approved plans to eventually build more than 2,000 homes on the 1,770-acre Forster Ranch. The council's 3-1 vote Wednesday night gave the Centex Development Corp. preliminary approval of its long-range plan for the land, which it would buy from Estrella Properties, a firm which has had a stormy relationship with the city.
