Developer Richard Chase dies

A developer who was embroiled in a lengthy battle to open the Gregory Canyon Landfill in rural inland North County died Friday of complications from cancer at the age of 67.

Richard Chase learned only recently that he had the disease, the type of which was not disclosed, said Kimberly Hale, a spokeswoman for the project.

He died at 7:40 a.m. at his Solana Beach home with his family by his side.

His wife, Nancy will take over as manager of the project, Hale said.

Nancy Chase, the founder of two area political consulting firms, has been involved in the landfill development since its inception.

The landfill was approved by voters in 1994, and its site was reaffirmed in another election in 2004. Opponents have cited environmental and traffic concerns in a pitched political battle to keep the project from coming to fruition.

“Richard assembled a tremendous team to make this project a reality,” his wife said in a statement. “All of us are committed to seeing it through the next few months when all permits will be in place and we can begin construction.”
