The Ehrlich Administration and federal agencies illegally dismissed a set of transportation projects that would provide more travel benefits and protect communities, parks and the Chesapeake Bay," said Neal Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of the Audubon Naturalist Society.
Individuals and organizations, including Environmental Defense, Sierra Club, Maryland Native Plant Society and Audubon Naturalist Society, have sought an objective analysis of options to address the traffic problems and transportation needs of area residents since Governor Ehrlich launched another study of the proposed ICC in 2003.
Audubon Naturalist Society, Maryland Native Plant Society & the Metcalf- Burton Family
In the US District Court for Maryland, Audubon Naturalist Society of the Central Atlantic States, Maryland Native Plant Society, and Roger Metcalf and Eve Burton, property owners who would lose their home in Derwood, MD to the ICC, are challenging the US Department of Transportation and other agencies' approval of the ICC because the agencies failed to consider reasonable alternatives and the full environmental impact of the proposed toll road, as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other statutes.
In a separate legal challenge, Audubon Naturalist Society, Maryland Native Plant Society, and the Metcalf-Burton family argue the agencies violated their responsibility to consider reasonable alternatives that could improve mobility in the area with less harm to the environment, water quality, and parks.
Legal representation for Audubon Naturalist Society, Maryland Native Plant Society and the Metcalf-Burton family is provided by Sidley Austin LLP.
