Description: Challenge to city bike plan, including on grounds that it did not analyze greenhouse gas impacts.
Anderson v. City and County of San Francisco
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 01/14/2013 Opinion Download Opinion issued reversing trial court's ruling for respondents. An individual challenged an environmental impact report (EIR) prepared in conjunction with an update of San Francisco’s bike plan on numerous grounds, including that the report failed to properly analyze the increased amounts of GHG emissions caused by several aspects of the plan, including allegedly degraded intersections that would increase car idling. This court affirmed the dismissal of this and other issues, holding that the lower court properly concluded that the EIR properly addressed these. However, the court did remand the case given that the EIR failed to make a finding of infeasibility with respect to certain mitigation measures.
