The City Council on Monday night began deliberations on a proposed Holly-Seacliff development agreement with the Huntington Beach Co., the city's largest and most influential landowner. No vote was taken, and discussion will be continued at a special council meeting next Monday. Holly-Seacliff is a 750-acre area in the northwest part of the city. It is one of the few undeveloped big tracts remaining in the city, and the Huntington Beach Co. owns about 90% of it.

A special meeting of the Planning Commission scheduled for Monday was canceled after the city's major landowner, the Huntington Beach Co., missed a deadline for producing a proposed development agreement. The meeting had been called so that the Planning Commission could consider a development agreement for the 768-acre housing and commercial project called Holly-Seacliff. The Huntington Beach Co. owns about 90% of the land scheduled for development in that area.

A controversial development proposal in the Bolsa Chica area by the Huntington Beach Co. has drawn criticism from County Harbors, Beaches and Parks Director Robert G. Fisher. Fisher, speaking at a city Planning Commission meeting on Tuesday night, spoke out against allowing high-rise condominiums to be built on the edge of a newly evolving county park in the Bolsa Chica area. The new public park, part of which was dedicated this year, is called the Bolsa Chica Regional Linear Park.

Free country club memberships received by some Huntington Beach officials do not create a conflict of interest when voting on projects affecting the club's owner, the city attorney said Monday. VIP memberships at Seacliff Country Club were worth less than $250, which is the ceiling above which City Council and Planning Commission members would have had to disqualify themselves from voting on actions affecting the Huntington Beach Co., the country club's owner, City Atty. Gail Hutton said.

The city's proposed Holly-Seacliff development agreement with the Huntington Beach Co. has cleared a last hurdle before heading for City Council approval. The Planning Commission voted 4-1 this week in favor of the agreement, which the council will consider at a special meeting Monday. Under the plan, forged during two months of intensive discussions, the company will provide the city with 41 acres for a planned linear park. But least two questions still must be resolved.

Things get curiouser and curiouser in Huntington Beach. Take the City Council's about-face Tuesday night.

Despite pleas from residents of the Seacliff development, the City Council has voted to allow a maintenance facility to be moved into that upscale area. Although the council placed some conditions on the proposed move, many residents said they were unhappy. At issue was a proposal to relocate the Seacliff Country Club maintenance facility to a site closer to existing Seacliff homes. Residents claimed that the move would increase noise and traffic and therefore lower their property values.

Pacific Coast Homes, a sister firm of the Huntington Beach Co., will present the City Council with 5 acres of parkland at the council meeting Tuesday night, company officials announced. The land is the first of 41 acres that Pacific Coast Homes pledged to give the city as part of the Holly Seacliff development agreement last year. All 41 acres will be used in forming the long-proposed, 106-acre Bolsa Chica Linear Park.
