Why Did North Coast Walk Away from the Community?

After months of hard work spent by community members to reach a good-faith compromise that would create much-needed new housing, North Coast submitted an application that abandons the Seminary Tomorrow working group promises.

Indeed, they walked away from the plan they showed at their December 2019 open house. The plan they submitted to the County had never been shown to the community.

All of us wonder: what was the point? Community volunteers spent hundreds of hours working on the Seminary Tomorrow negotiation process. The applicant also spent a tremendous amount of time and resources to move the conversation forward. But during the final stretch, they simply walked away. Why?
