The gist is this: GL has tried to develop his land into a super-awesome movie studio ready to accommodate the needs of his people. However, his neighbours have fought it every step of the way.
So what's he going to do?
Turn the land into a place for low-income housing. Ha. As he said:
The level of bitterness and anger expressed by the homeowners in Lucas Valley has convinced us that, even if we were to spend more time and acquire the necessary approvals, we would not be able to maintain a constructive relationship with our neighbors.
We love working and living in Marin, but the residents of Lucas Valley have fought this project for 25 years, and enough is enough. Marin is a bedroom community and is committed to building subdivisions, not business. Many years ago, we tried to stop the Lucas Valley Estates project from being built, but we failed, and we now have a subdivision on our doorstep."
Sorry, the area is already called Lucas Valley? Time for us to check out/.
