CEQA, the state’s premier environmental law, allows outsiders to wade into developments. That’s a big part of why it’s one of the biggest headaches for San Diego businesses.

A year after it opened, Connections Housing is still experiencing growing pains. Permanent residents and interim residents are governed by different rules and separate agencies, and a recent grand jury report highlighted ongoing budget issues.
