Environmental Defense Project of Sierra Valley scores two victories

Sierra County — The Environmental Defense Project of Sierra County (EDP) announced two victories in their efforts to protect the magnificent Sierra Valley.

EDP announced a settlement agreement with two Sierra Valley property owners seeking to subdivide property in the Sierra Valley. The settlement protected the property from future subdivision and also created a substantial grant fund within The Sierra Fund for further efforts to protect the Sierra Valley.

In The Environmental Defense Project of Sierra County vs. Sierra County, the court found in favor of EDP and ordered Sierra County to refund fees that had been inappropriately charged to EDP to hold a public hearing in Sierra Valley.

Attorney Michael Graf represented EDP in both successful actions.
