Court Upholds EIR for a Mixed-Use Senior Housing Project in Auburn

August 14th, 2012

By: Thomas Law Group



On August 13, 2012, Placer County Superior Court visiting Judge, Leslie C. Nichols, upheld the Placer County Board of Supervisors’ approval of an EIR for a continuing care retirement community, a commercial center, and a loop trail to be built on an infill site in Northern Placer County, within the Auburn Bowman Community Plan. Petitioners Ad-Hoc Committee and Jon Forslund had challenged the proposed project under CEQA, claiming that the EIR did not properly analyze the potential for the project to cause urban blight. The court ruled in favor of the Respondent and Real Party in Interest on all claims. Thomas Law Group represented the real party in interest, Western Care Construction Co., throughout the litigation.
