Court upholds EIR for redevelopment of Treasure Island

On December 14, 2012, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Teri Jackson issued her ruling on pending litigation challenging the Environmental Impact Report prepared for a plan to redevelop Treasure Island.  Judge Jackson ruled the City of San Francisco had complied with CEQA in certifying the EIR and approving the plan.  The plan, approved by the Board of Supervisors in June 2011, calls for 8,000 residential units, commercial and office uses, and roughly 300 acres of open space.  The lawsuit raised a wide range of claims regarding the EIR.  Judge Jackson rejected these claims and denied the petition.  RMM partners Whit Manley and Chip Wilkins and Senior Associate Jennifer Holman represented Treasure Island Community Development, the developer who worked with the City to formulate the plan.
