Time for City of Tracy to Reveal Identity and Plot of Horizon Planet, a Mysterious Group Using the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)

Here’s an email I sent to the Tracy City Council and top management of the City of Tracy.

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 an article I wrote in the fall of 2013 in www.FlashReport.org about Horizon Planet’s activities in Tracy: Space Aliens Abuse CEQA!

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

They Are Here. And They’ve Discovered the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)

As I was monitoring the environmental objections of the Carpenters Union Local 152 (such as this May 20, 2013 letter) to the proposed Cordes Ranch Specific Plan in the City of Tracy, I stumbled upon a much more mysterious and sinister entity submitting CEQA objections to the city’s proposed developments.

A group called Horizon Planet had been submitting objections under CEQA to the City of Tracy for a variety of development policies and proposals over the past year. It had even sued the City of Tracy.

But no information was available about who was behind Horizon Planet or what they wanted. My article about Horizon Planet – Space Aliens Abuse CEQA! – was published in www.FlashReport.org on September 20, 2013.
