Branciforte Heights v. City of Santa Cruz, H028864

Writ compelling defendant city to allow a private open space credit against the park fees exacted from plaintiff developer is reversed in the absence of a local ordinance providing for such a credit. Moreover, Government Code section 66477 does not create the direct right to receive a private open space credit that is enforceable by a traditional writ of mandate.
