Today, Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor ruled that the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) violated state law by failing to fully account for, and take steps to reduce, climate pollution in its environmental review of the region’s long-term transportation plan. The ruling is a major rebuke to regional planners in the San Diego region and a warning shot to other regional planning organizations that just passing a plan and calling it green is no longer enough.
“The court is setting an important example here for regional planning agencies throughout California,” said Kathryn Phillips, director of Sierra Club California. “We cannot wait another 40 years to adopt sensible transportation and land-use policies. Thanks to California laws requiring public agencies to be open about their plans, we were able to hold SANDAG accountable for its faulty planning practices.”
yeah! take that, SANDAG!
f— your bs 2050 plan! more of the same business as usual; San Diego would go deeper in transportation hell if this sh-t continued.
check out the much smarter and speedier 50/10 plan: build 50 years of transit projects in the first ten years, then freeway projects later. the proper order.
this picture makes me so mad! repaved road, but restriped the same stupidass way! wtf use is a middle turn lane if there’s nothing to turn into! should have added bike lanes on both sides instead! and widened the sidewalk while you’re at it! middle turn lanes are such a waste of space and these are all over san diego wtfhell let me rewrite the antiquated traffic engineering books and eliminate this bs
