469 Stevenson St and the Future of Housing Accountability in California [in-person event]

In-Person Forum


469 stevenson parking lot

Join UC Davis law professor Chris Elmendorf and SPUR for a conversation about the notorious “Nordstrom’s parking lot” housing development that San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors held up with dubious demands for additional environmental review. Chris will walk us through the relationship between the California Environmental Quality Act, or CEQA, and the state’s Housing Accountability Act, and discuss the recent court decision in the 469 Stevenson case and potential solutions. There’ll be plenty of time for Q&A, too.


If you have any questions at all, please reach out to Angelina at [email protected].
