Placer County Enforcement Action

CCEC has initiated environmental enforcement action against Placer County for actions connected with approval of a sprawling second-home development on 662 acres of forest near Kings Beach at iconic Lake Tahoe. The proceeding addresses the county's--

  • Failure to recognize large traffic impacts on the North Shore
  • Failure to report effects of widening highway 267
  • Failure to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions
  • Failure to consider tree mortality epidemic in the Sierras
  • Failure to fund cycling paths as sustainable transportation
  • Failure to consider clustering of homes as an alternative to sprawl
  • Failure to recognize that second homes don't reduce energy consumption.

Petition for Writ of Mandate can be found here.
