Questions, Questions, Questions

Given that the Second + PCH project is beginning (or about to begin) the environmental review process, I'm starting to get a lot more CEQA-type questions. Fair enough.

As events unfold, I will be making posts which (hopefully) will explain what is transpiring with regards to the regulatory process. My intention is also to provide thoughts on how to write effective comment letters, when to raise issues, etc.

I'm very fortunate in that I've been given some EXCELLENT resource material by CEQA attorney Doug Carstens of the firm Chatten-Brown & Carstens (CBC). For those unfamiliar, CBC was the firm hired to fight the (successful) CEQA lawsuit brought over the ill-fated Long Beach Home Depot Project. They really know their stuff over there at CBC! Thanks guys!

So stay tuned.....
