Opening salvo in Bay Area Citizens v. Association of Bay Area Governments

By Damien M. Schiff Senior Attorney

This week, we filed our opening brief in the trial court in PLF’s challenge to Plan Bay Area.  We represent the Bay Area Citizens, a group of concerned Bay Area residents who object to the Plan’s “stack and pack” and anti-personal-commute-vehicle approach to land-use planning.  The heart of our case is the argument that the Plan’s high-density vision is unnecessary to achieve the Bay Area’s state-law mandated greenhouse gas reduction goals, and that the responsible agencies failed to relate this critical information to the public.  The hearing will be in June.
