Project Title:
Petition to the Supreme Court in Defense of CEQA and Protection of the Santa Clara River
California Wildlands Grassroots Fund, 2018
Land Management/Urban Sprawl/Open Space
Southern Coast
Los Angeles County
Ventura County
Project Description:

This grant would help fund a petition to the CA Supreme Court and the legal briefings to ask that they review the recent appellate Court decision. That decision allowed Newhall Ranch developers to skirt the normal CEQA process. We are concerned that without this review our huge CA Supreme Court victory in 2015, requiring additional Greenhouse gas mitigation and protection for an endangered fish will not be properly enforced.The 2015 victory was facilitated with the help of Rose and partner organizations (who have now settled and are no longer helping us with this important issue).
