Sierra Club v. 22nd District Agricultural Ass'n

ELR Citation: 42 ELR 20213
Nos. 37-2011-00091507-CU-TT-CTL, (Sup. Ct. Cal., 10/02/2012)

A California court dismissed all but three claims raised by an environmental group challenging a county's environmental impact report for a fairground expansion project. The group raised concerns about impacts of the proposed development on wetlands, biological resources, traffic, greenhouse gases, and water supply. The court ruled that the county failed to adequately analyze traffic impacts and mitigation, identify an adequate water supply for the project in the short term, and describe existing greenhouse gas emissions from fairgrounds operations. But the remaining claims were dismissed.
