City officials in San Clemente are bracing for a special City Council meeting later this month to decide the fate of one of the county's last undeveloped oceanfront properties: Marblehead Coastal. The 250-acre development, proposed by Irvine-based Lusk Holding Co., has created a debate among residents over whether the city's need for sales tax revenue and other benefits outweighs feelings of nostalgia for founder Ole Hanson's vision of a quiet little "Spanish Village by the Sea."

A developer's unexpected withdrawal of plans to build homes and a retail center on the majestic Marblehead coastal bluff has jeopardized a host of city projects in San Clemente, including a new senior center, a library expansion and improvements to the downtown area. The city was relying on the Marblehead development to generate a hefty chunk of its future property tax revenue, roughly $2 million a year.

The company proposing a housing and retail development on San Clemente's Marblehead bluff abruptly withdrew its plan Monday when it became clear the California Coastal Commission would reject it. Officials for Lusk Co., which owns the 250-acre coastal parcel, withdrew the proposal to make major modifications. "I'm disappointed," said Jim Johnson, Lusk's chief executive, after the Coastal Commission, meeting in San Diego, was 4 1/2 hours into its hearing on the issue.

Nixon Presidential Library, the 100-foot sandstone bluffs in northern San Clemente will be part of an oceanfront development that will include a major hotel, an 18-hole golf course and up to 500 homes, officials from the Irvine-based Lusk Co.

A ballot initiative that could slow residential development in San Clemente to a trickle will appear on the November ballot, thanks to a decision announced Monday by the California 4th District Court of Appeal. "We feel great about it," said Nancy Padberg, a lawyer representing the authors of the Residential Building Permit Moratorium Initiative, of the decision by Presiding Judge David G. Sills. "At least the voters will get a chance."
