Parking lot operator files CEQA lawsuit against city over $5B LAX redevelopment

It’s not the NIMBYs this time around.

The operator of the Parking Spot near LAX is suing the City for its approval of a $5 billion portion of the airport modernization project, alleging that the environmental impact report for the development fell short of addressing the potential effects of the project.

Through its lawsuit filed last week, TPS Parking Century and TPS Parking Management claim that the city approved the project even though its environmental review, required under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), failed to fully analyze its impact on traffic congestion and intersections, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Project officials say the lawsuit is just an attempt on TPS’ part to protect its business.

“This is a clear attempt for the Parking Spot to preserve their parking revenue by slowing down this important project that moves passengers efficiently,” said Trevor Daley, the chief of external affairs for Los Angeles World Airports.

LAX’ $14 billion renovation includes building new roads, remodeling domestic terminals, improving runways, and building a new midfield concourse. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
