Newark: Judge rejects bid to stop housing development next to wetlands

Mercury News

A controversial development plan roughly 30 years in the making to build 469 large homes on the edge of Newark’s wetlands can proceed, a judge has decided... The two groups that sued the city, along with Sierra Club San Francisco Bay Chapter, Greenbelt Alliance, and San Francisco Baykeeper, launched an online petition to encourage the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board to “exercise their full regulatory authority to protect the ‘Newark Area 4’ baylands before it is too late.”
