The Irvine Co. on Thursday ran into another snag in its effort to build homes above Crystal Cove State Park--a recommendation from staff of a state environmental agency that the controversial project be denied a key permit. In a new report, the staff of the California Coastal Commission recommended that the board next month deny a development permit for 635 homes in the project. Construction already has begun on a separate section of the project along Pacific Coast Highway.
