National Ctr. for Preservation Law v. Landrieu

ELR Citation: 11 ELR 20168
Nos. No. 80-1597, 635 F.2d 324/(4th Cir., 12/22/1980) Aff'd

The court summarily affirms the trial court's dismissal, 10 ELR 20820, of a challenge to the construction of a convention center complex in an historic area of Charleston, South Carolina, to be funded by grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Economic Development Administration. Federal appellees did not violate the National Environmental Policy Act by delegating their statutory duties to the city of Charleston, and the city's supplement to the final environmental impact statement for the project was properly ruled adequate. In addition, appellees were correctly found to have complied with the National Historic Preservation Act and the Housing and Community Development Act.
