Pacific Legal Foundation has filed a lawsuit to challenge the City of Oakland’s ordinance that requires developers of commercial and residential projects to fund public art works. In this podcast, PLF Senior Staff Attorney Tony Francois discusses the ordinance and PLF’s federal lawsuit that was filed July 23 on behalf of the Building Industry Association of the Bay Area.  PLF’s challenge argues that Oakland is violating constitutional protections for property rights and free speech — and unjustly raising costs for home buyers and businesses — by forcing builders of homes and commercial projects to fund art works that have no reasonable connection to any public needs created by their building projects.
