Sad to say the project was a done deal as far as the SR Council is concerned before the public ever heard of it. Your group needs to raise money now to hire experts and an attorney to document the flaws in the EIR, then sue the City after they approve it for failure to comply with CEQA. If they need a rezoning, you could do a referendum on it immediately after it is approved. Also, why is this land a "Preserve" and now it can be built out? You better check into that right away.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
