November 19, 1998
After years of wrangling and despite a crush of opposition, the City Council early Wednesday approved the Bixby Ranch Co.'s plan to build homes and a busy retail center in northern Seal Beach. The 4-1 vote came after two marathon council sessions lasting a total of 10 hours and criticism from more than 3,000 residents who signed petitions against the project that they said would pave over much of the largest plots of land that remain undeveloped in Seal Beach.

An environmental impact report for the controversial Bixby Ranch development proposal won conditional approval from a city panel and will move to the Seal Beach Planning Commission. The Environmental Quality Control Board's approval of the report does not mean it endorses the project, only that the document meets legal standards and will provide enough information for city officials to make a decision about the development proposal.

When a state panel last week narrowly blessed a project that would fill a piece of Seal Beach coastal wetlands for an 18-hole golf course, one onlooker remarked that the Eureka meeting room was so thick with lawyers that it felt like a courtroom. Not surprisingly, one of those lawyers spent most of a United Airlines flight home to Southern California poring over a copy of the California Coastal Act, which governs development along the state's 1,100-mile coastline.

In a move that has angered activists, a state panel is scheduled to decide the fate of the controversial Hellman Ranch development in far-off Eureka, 700 miles north of the Seal Beach wetlands that have sparked a spirited environmental tug of war. Due to a tangle of deadlines and geography, the California Coastal Commission will vote on the project the second week in September, when it convenes in the far northwest corner of the state.

The buses were to pull out of Orange County shortly after dawn today, headed for Santa Barbara and an emotional showdown over the future of one of Seal Beach's last remaining pieces of open space. Two buses were to carry project supporters prepared to tell the California Coastal Commission why it should approve the building of 70 luxury homes, an 18-hole golf course and restored wetlands at Hellman Ranch.
