Description: Challenge to roadway project in the City of San Diego.
Save Civita Because Sudberry Won’t v. City of San Diego
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 12/16/2021 Opinion Download Denial of petition/complaint affirmed. California Appellate Court Upheld CEQA Review for San Diego Roadway Project. The California Court of Appeal upheld the CEQA review for a roadway project in the City of San Diego. Climate change was not a high-profile issue in the case, but among the arguments rejected by the court was that the final EIR for the project failed to discuss the project’s purported inconsistencies with the City’s general plan. The court found that the City reasonably determined in the final EIR that the project furthered numerous policies in the general plan, including reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and that the City had reasonably weighed and balanced the plan’s policies in approving the project.
