Sweeping victory for Lubin Olson Land Use Group

In a sweeping victory for the University of California, San Francisco, the California Supreme Court has denied the petition for review filed by appellants in Yerba Buena Neighborhood Consortium, LLC, et al v. Regents of the University of California/San Franciscans for Balanced and Livable Communities v. Regents of the University of California (2023) 95 Cal.App.5th 779, a partially published opinion of the First District Court of Appeal, which upholds the University’s Environmental Impact Report for the
Comprehensive Parnassus Heights Plan (the “CPHP”).

The CPHP is a planning proposal for a set of individual projects and goals to be completed at the Parnassus Heights campus over the next thirty years, including as its centerpiece the construction of a new state-of-the-art hospital. By denying the petition for review, the Supreme Court has affirmed the First District’s decision in full, which upholds the trial court’s denial of all issues alleged under CEQA by Petitioners.

Lubin Olson attorneys Charles Olson, Carolyn Lee, and Philip
Sciranka represented the University in the preparation of the EIR, trial court litigation, and appeal.
