Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Homewood Expansion
SAM Magazine--According to published reports, a federal lawsuit was filed late last week against Homewood Mountain Resort, Calif., by The Sierra Club and Friends of the West Shore. The suit was filed against the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and Placer County for approving, in their words, "an ill-conceived, inadequately studied, and environmentally-disruptive development." The plaintiffs further stated that such a development would lead to air and lake pollution.
JMA Ventures, which owns the resort, announced the approval of its $250 million project in mid-December, by TARPA. For more on the project, check out www.saminfo.com/news/article.php?tid=5410
