Here is a Jan. 29, 2007, post on the Jackling issue from the Citizens of Woodside (COW) blog:

Last week the Court of Appeals ruled the Town Council cannot allow Steve Jobs to tear down his residence the Jackling House. The appellate court sided with the Uphold Our Heritage preservation group and denied the Town Council and Jobs’ appeal.
If Jobs wants to build a smaller newer house on the property he must find someone who is willing to renovate the Jackling House and MOOve it to a new location possibly somewhere still in Woodside.
We here at COWS take the same position on this issue that we did earlier last year ( See the spilled milk here Web Link ). We want to make sure the Town Council does not make mistakes regardless of the situation or the people involved.
