A Covina-based nonprofit filed a California Environmental Quality Act petition to review a Corona warehouse construction project in Riverside Superior Court Jan. 27.
The Supporters Alliance for Environmental Responsibility specifically challenges Corona’s granting of a grading permit Dec. 13, and of a development plan review permit Oct. 3, 2019. The petition claims the city improperly exempted both from CEQA’s requirements.
The city’s assessment found the project ministerial, and therefore exempt from CEQA, because it did not require issuance of discretionary permits by the city, according to the city’s preliminary exemption assessment.
