UC Davis Response to AFSCME’s California Environmental Quality Act Lawsuit

The University of California, Davis, released the following statement today (Sept. 28) regarding a lawsuit in connection with the UC Davis West Village Expansion:

We are perplexed and profoundly disappointed by AFSCME’s California Environmental Quality Act lawsuit related to the UC Davis Long Range Development Plan. We have previously made a series of generous offers to AFSCME that would have benefited UC Davis’ represented service workers and enabled UC Davis’ housing projects to move forward. Despite agreement that more student housing is a benefit to all, AFSCME’s suit will likely prevent UC Davis from building affordable student housing in the near term.
