California Coastal Commission - Dastardly Villains Strike Again

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Dan and Denise SterlingĀ plus their four children have been living in a mobile home since buying their land a decade ago, while attempting to secure a building permit for an approximately 6,000 square-foot home.

From a legal perspective, what the Coastal Commission is demanding is flat-out unconstitutional

-David Breemer, Pacific Legal Foundation

The Commission should abide by the United States Constitution. The Supreme Court’s doctrine on this issue has been well-settled for 20 years, when PLF beat the Coastal Commission in Nollan.

The Coastal Commission seems determined not to give us a fair shake. We spent two years trying to do everything the staff of the Coastal Commission asked, but nothing was enough. What’s really happening here is that we’re being forced to give this land over as a park or open space for the community, but we still pay taxes on it, and are still responsible for the other liabilities of property ownership

-Dan Sterling

The U.S. Supreme Court has clearly said that governments can’t use the building permit process to extort property from the permit applicant.

The Commission is exploiting the Sterlings’ permit application as an opportunity to seize property from the Sterlings - without paying a penny for the vast agricultural easement the Commission wants - and that’s illegal.

-David Breemer, Pacific Legal Foundation
