Coastal Commission OK
We have just received a letter of approval from the California Coastal Commission for putting in the required 5000 gallon septic tank and new connecting sewer lines as well as taking some of the overhead electrical lines and putting them underground. This is all in preparation for adding the restrooms to the cabins.

The last hurdle is the required public hearing for the restroom addition by Mendocino County. Currently this hearing is scheduled for September 22, 2005. If there are no significant protests at this public hearing, Mendocino County will issue our building permits within a month of the hearing. This coming week, we will be double-checking all the building plans. After Dale Withers, at Plant Services, makes the necessary modifications in the building plans, we will submit them for an "early plan check." By requesting an early plan check we can be already to lift the building permits as soon as the Public Hearing process is completed.

If everything goes as planned, we will be able to begin work on the underground phase of the project sometime in September or October. As the time gets closer and things develop we will keep you informed via this newsletter.
