Thanks to all of you bloggers who have kept the June thread on Hoover School active. You can see from that post's comments that it remains a hot button issue in town and the ruling last week will keep it on the front burner. Today's Daily Journal article notes
San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Marie Weiner ruled Wednesday in favor of the Alliance for Responsible Neighborhood Planning that sued the district, stating it needs to prepare a full environmental impact report on traffic impacts since its initial traffic study was inadequate. A tentative decision was first issued Oct. 9.
The ruling further states an EIR is required under the California Environmental Quality Act for at least traffic and parking impacts on this proposed project.
“The court concludes that there is substantial evidence in the administrative record for a fair argument that the Hoover Elementary School Project, under the initial study and mitigated negative declaration that were adopted by respondent, might have a significant environmental impact,” the ruling stated.
There is more detail in the newspaper article and I'm sure the bloggers who are following this will weigh in.
