Court denies Clover Valley lawsuits

-A +A
Sacramento Superior Court has ruled not to move forward on two lawsuits to stop development of Clover Valley, Terry Davis, Sierra Club Mother Lodge Chapter representative, confirmed Monday evening. The suits were filed by the Sierra Club and Clover Valley Foundation, and the city of Loomis against the city of Rocklin. “It certainly is sad,” Davis said. “We’ve always thought that Clover Valley is such a unique amenity. It is something that should be saved for future generations. We thought the judge would agree with some of our arguments.” The judge took the maximum 90 days he could by law to decide, Davis said. Rocklin Councilmember Kathy Lund said she was happy with the outcome. “I was very pleased with the ruling,” she said. Lund said the judge’s ruling said, “We did the right thing.” The 622-acre Clover Valley is situated between Rocklin and Loomis, south of Lincoln. A revised plan for development would include 404 homes, down from the originally approved 558. Lund said beginning development of Clover Valley depends on the developers and the economy. --Gloria Young and Lauren Weber
