Subject: For Tracy City Council: 3/4/14 closed session item – Horizon Planet v. City of Tracy, et al.
Dear Tracy City Councilmembers:
During your closed session meeting tomorrow (March 4, 2014), you will discuss Pending Litigation – Horizon Planet v. City of Tracy, et al. (San Joaquin County Superior Court Case No. 39-2013-00302508-CU-WM-STK).
I urge you to inform the public about the true identity of this alleged group known as “Horizon Planet” and reveal the concessions it is demanding from the City of Tracy and/or the parties planning to develop the Cordes Ranch project.
At some point, someone in this state needs to have the gumption to reveal the extent of how the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is used in actual practice behind the scenes. Hiding behind a law firm, the backers of the so-called “Horizon Planet” organization have been hounding your city concerning the approval of several projects. The public doesn’t know who they are or what they want. Yet the public is paying to defend your city from litigation and may end up paying some sort of settlement.
Time to flush them out.
Here’s the Petition for Writ of Mandate – Horizon Planet v. City of Tracy, et al.: http://phonyuniontreehuggers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/2013-10-02-Horizon-Planet-v.-City-of-Tracy-Cordes-Ranch-Project.pdf
