Stalled Development Week: 2562 Corralitas

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 30, 2009. Piles of trash at 2562 Corralitas Drive have been there since July 11, 2009. The site has not changed since these photos were taken two weeks ago. (click on photo to enlarge.)

The fence isn't secure either. Neighbors report people rooting around the construction site on weekends, but no actual work seems to take place. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

After a year of inactivity since the owner/developer died, neighbors were hopeful when the site was cleaned up in April; scaffolding went up in late June; a layer of stucco applied in early July. However, there has been no new activity on the site since July 11, 2009. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Developers wonder why neighbors get hostile. They broke ground in February 2007.

10 AM Update: Neighbors report a worker on site who seems to be prepping the exterior for paint.
