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

March 13, 2014 | By DAMIEN SCHIFF

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.
