I hope pontoons, flippers, boats and other near-future necessities will be a condition of permitting for the quarry.
"Where the sewage meets the sea" might be a catchy phrase for the sales brochure.

It's beginning to appear that the entire quarry will be rezoned to "Planned Development" and City Council will completely override the local ballot measures requiring approval of housing measures in the quarry that voters have approved three times.

Here's a blueprint to fight the proposed massive new Pacifica Quarry development or Linda Mar Woods or wherever.
Hint: It's all about the traffic study.
In November 2016, the Measure W quarry vote failed by 68.86%.
SB9 & SB10 allow local governments, aka our realtor-majority City Council, to overturn the quarry ballot measure almost at will.
But they can't lie on the traffic study; do it when schools are out of session, summer break, etc.

Now that it has been determined that GGNRA has no interest in the Linda Mar Woods property, the AG has clarified the requirements of what property attributes would trigger protection by the state Endangered Species Act, and it appears that Linda Mar Woods would qualify as protected by the California Endangered Species Act habitat:
"...candidate for protection under the California Endangered Species Act. Habitat is land that has the capacity to support that species, including providing food and shelter. Land that is already developed² with, for example, a single-family home² is not, by definition, habitat."

Good for Woodside. The socially and environmentally destructive SB 9 and SB10 bills, signed into law by our blindly ambitious, corporate sell-out, sustainability-ignorant governor, are prominent among those requiring local governments to get imaginative in an attempt to serve their citizens on quality-of-life issues. Few localities have the circumstances of Woodside, Portola Valley, Atherton, and Hillsborough in our county, but all will be required to defend local control if they care about the long-term well-being of their citizens.

Would high-density housing decrease home values?
