Objectivity would have triggered an EIR 

Morro Bay

I am writing in response to your piece in last week’s edition titled “Morro council bows to Cerrito property owner” (Dec. 15). I was one of the appellants in the case and need to comment on Councilmember Nancy Johnson’s quote here, stating “… many in the audience think we can just order [an EIR], but it just doesn’t work that way”.

The fact is, however, that the initial studies conducted by the city left so many unanswered questions and glossed over so many “potential significant impacts” of the development, including harm to neighboring properties and destruction of a Native American archaeological site, that, had questions been answered honestly and objectively, instead of rubber stamping a forgone conclusion to benefit the developer, an EIR would have automatically been triggered as required by California state law.
