Environmental Planning & Information Council v. County of El Dorado

(1982) 131 Cal.App.3d 350

The Court of Appeal held that an EIR for a general plan amendment must analyze the project’s impacts on the existing environment, rather than simply compare the project’s impacts to the eventual impacts that could occur in the future through build out under existing specific plan or general plan designations.
