Sandag Plan Takes a Hit
A Tuesday court ruling found the San Diego Association of Government’s 40-year transportation plan violated California environmental regulations.
What it Means
For now, the future of Sandag’s plan is uncertain. The organization could negotiate changes to the plan, or it could appeal the judgment — further testing what is already a pioneering court decision on regional groups’ burden under state environmental laws.
What They’re Saying
Lawyers for the plan’s opponents said they hope Sandag will consider ways to make the plan legal; a Sandag spokesperson said the organization supports its plan and believes it complies with environmental requirements. Sandag’s board will meet Friday to discuss how to proceed.
