Some CdM Oceanviews may be Diminished?

After choosing properties in Corona del Mar precisely for the oceanviews, some residents’ views of the ocean may be diminished by King Palm trees planted by the city.

The trees were purchased by the city from a San Diego estate, but are native to Australia.  In their indigenous country, they can grow to an overwhelming, and certainly view-blocking, 40 feet high.  City employees are certain; however, that the trees will not grow more than 30 feet high in this area.

Concerned residents have protested their increasingly blocked view of the ocean; and in response have received an encouraging agreement from the city to remove and sell the trees should they grow more than the expected 30 feet.
