Current Mayor Coursey takes Paulin Creeks side when last considered for development

Back in 2006, still with the Press Democrat, current mayor Chris Coursey took up the cause of Paulin Creek when developer Mike Sass was considering the area for development. Describing the area as "a revelation" Coursey was very much on the side of keeping parcel J a preserve. 

Currently Coursey is not involved in the decision to sell Parcel J to a developer, but in order to finalize the deal his approval will be needed.
