Moss v. County of Humboldt, A114205

In an appeal considering the appropriate level of review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for a subdivision project which was initially approved but subsequent delays caused its tentative map to expire, judgment denying landowner's petition for writ of mandate and requiring the preparation of a new environmental impact report is affirmed in part and reversed in part where: 1) the subdivision at issue was not a new project for purposes of CEQA; 2) supplemental environmental review was required based on new information about certain potentially significant impacts; but 3) substantial evidence supported some findings regarding these impacts, while not others.
