Another Example of CEQA Misuse: Moe’s Stop Gas Station, San Jose

CEQA Working Group Coalition:

Today we’ve released the fourth case study in our weekly series profiling examples of misuses of CEQA: Moe’s Stop Gas Station in San Jose. When Moe’s Stop wanted to add a few more pumps to the existing gas station, the owner of a competing gas station across the street filed a CEQA lawsuit in an attempt to stop the project- causing $500,000 in increased costs for the small business owner and 18 months of delay.
