Inyo Citizens for Better Planning v. Inyo County Bd. of Supervisors, No. E046646
Denial of plaintiff's petitions for writ of mandate directing defendants to set aside a 2001 County General Plan Amendment (GPA) that alters the definition of "net acreage" for failure to prepare an environmental impact report (EIR) is reversed in part and affirmed in part where: 1) substantial evidence supports a finding that the GPA could have a significant impact on the environment, and therefore, the County should have prepared an EIR; and 2) in all other respects, the orders of the trial court denying the writs of mandate are affirmed.
