In a move that has upset some members of Montecito’s Coral Casino, the Santa Barbara County planning staff released a report Wednesday which concludes that Ty Warner has properly run the private beach club. In an 8-page memo, county staff determined that Warner has complied with all 90 conditions of the approvals first granted prior to extensive renovations. The report came after some club members charged that Ty Warner Hotels and Resorts failed to comply with the promises the company made when it renovated the private club in 2005. Backed by a letter from attorney Derek Westin, the Member Committee of the Coral Casino in February had asked for a full hearing before the Montecito Planning Commission to discuss whether Warner was in compliance. “I wish we were looking at a different report,” said William Reyner, chairman of the Member Committee, “but I am not surprised.
