After the meeting at the SLO County Parks Dept, Greg Sanders wrote to Kami Griffin at the Planning Dept about why Cave Landing should be allowed to install a water pipeline to connect to the CSA 12 water main.
Greg made one mistake in this letter. He said that the urban reserve and urban services lines are coterminous. I had proofread the letter before Greg sent it, as had Dave Watson, and we both missed that. It actually is a trivial mistake, but later Kami seized on this mistake as part of her decision to not allow Cave Landing to use CSA 12 water.

People applying for a minor use permit in SLO county are advised to have a pre-application meeting with the Planning Dept to find out if there are any issues that need to be addressed in the MUP application. We decided to do this. We wanted to make sure that if the Planning Dept had any questions that we would have the right expert there to answer immediately. So on Monday, May 24th, at 11:00am my team met with the Planning Dept in at the main county building.
My team consisted of Dave Watson (planner), Leonard Grant (architect), Bill Cole (geologist), Dennis Shallenberger (geologist), Rick Gorman (geologist), Jeffrey Smith (landscape architect), Brooke Langle (environmental), Susan Roberts (engineering), Todd Smith (engineering/planning), Ed Collins (engineering manager), and Greg Gibbons (general contractor).
Lenny made a presentation, Dave made a few remarks, and then asked for questions from the Planning staff. There were none. The meeting lasted exactly one hour because the Planning staff was anxious to leave for lunch at noon.
Based on this meeting we decided to submit our application for a minor use permit with the information and documentation that we already had.
