"Pave Paradise, Put Up a Parking Lot"
Where: Martis Valley in Sierras between Truckee and Lake Tahoe, CA
Who: Placer County Superior Court Judge
What: Tentatively halted plans for 6,000 house development
Hidden issue: East-West Partners, one of the project's developers, said plans were being made to limit the amount of disturbance to local residents, such as relocating parking lots.
Comment: Environmentalists want to preserve pristine valley. If this is the best the developers could offer, no wonder the judge ruled thumbs down.
