Carnegie SVRA Alameda-Tesla Expansion Legislation- April 2020
Here we go again with more legislation to stop the Alameda/Tesla Expansion at the Carnegie SVRA. Similar legislation was shot down by both Gov. Brown and Gov. Newsom in the past few years.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service announce plans to withdraw a propose rule to extend Endangered Species Act protections to a distinct population of greater sage grouse found only along the California-Nevada border.
After a yearlong review of the bi-state Sage Grouse population, the FWS has determined that the threats are no longer as significant as was believed when FWS first proposed listing the bird as a threatened species in 2013.
The Cal4Wheel website is now hosting a fairly comprehensive Glossary of Landuse and Environmental
Terms. (https://cal4wheel.com/access-advocacy/glossary). I have been working on
this glossary for the past 15 years by compiling terms and definitions from a variety of landuse
documents. It is now in a format that is relatively easy to update with new terms and is a good
fit for the Cal4Wheel Access Advocacy section of the website. If you encounter any terms you
do not understand, send me a note and I will get it added to the glossary.
