Oakland Zoo Expansion Opponents File Suit Today

We knew it was coming, and here we have it. Critics of the Oakland Zoo’s expansion into upper Knowland Park officially filed suit today against the zoo for failing to perform an Environmental Impact Report. The suit was filed by the California Native Plant Society, a Sacramento organization with an East Bay chapter geared toward preserving California’s native flora, and Friends of Knowland Park, a community organization that has fought to represent neighbors and the park itself ever since changes to the expansion, first approved in 1998, were proposed four years ago. If successful, it could delay or further alter the expansion plans.
