Holland & Knight's West Coast Land Use and Environment Practice Group has provided an update to its "In the Name of the Environment" report, detailing California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) lawsuits that targeted housing projects in the counties and cities within the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).
The new report shows an overall increase in the number of CEQA lawsuits filed in the SCAG region. The biggest target of CEQA lawsuits were residential projects (33 percent), followed by public service/infrastructure projects (14 percent). In our last report, a roughly equal number of residential projects and public service/infrastructure projects were targeted.
About 14,000 housing units were targeted by CEQA lawsuits during the study period.
This report also includes a CEQA lawsuit that successfully stopped a 200-bed homeless shelter.
