New, 3 comments

Stalemate! Yesterday's cadre of fire-breathing cyclists on the Mayor's steps have no one to blame but the State: the California Environmental Quality Act of 1960; the law is being used as the basis for a legal challenge (a successful one, we might add) that led to a court injunction against new bike projects. Says Planning Director John Rahaim “It’s truly ironic that an activity that is inherently environmentally friendly is being challenged under an environmental law.” [SFBG]
