Citizens for Quality Growth v. City of Mt. Shasta

(1988) 198 Cal.App.3d 433

The Court of Appeal required the City of Mount Shasta to prepare findings prior to approving a general plan amendment that would allow a shopping center project, even though the applicant had not yet submitted any specific development proposal. The court required that the findings address the feasibility of environmentally superior project alternatives before the City could adopt a statement of overriding considerations.
