Phase Two Freeze in Playa Vista!

Thanks to Reader Cass for this gem:

"City of Santa Monica, Ballona Wetlands Land Trust, Anthony Morales, and Surfrider Foundation (collectively Petitioners) and Ballona Ecosystem Education Project (BEEP) challenge the certification by City of Los Angeles (City) of an environmental impact report (EIR) and the City’s approval of phase two of the Playa Vista development project ... with respect to historical archaeological resources, methane gas, wastewater, transportation, and alternatives to the project... We conclude that the EIR was deficient in its analysis of land use impacts, mitigation of impacts on historical archaeological resources, and wastewater impacts. We therefore reverse the judgment with directions to the superior court to issue a peremptory writ of mandate ordering the City to vacate its certification of the EIR and its project approvals and make appropriate revisions to the EIR."
