Azusa Land Partners v. Dep't of Indus. Relations, B218275

In plaintiff's petition for a writ of mandate seeking to vacate a determination by the Department of Industrial Relations (Department) that a planned community project is a "public work" as defined by Labor Code section 1720, and subject to prevailing wage laws applicable to public improvement work performed by private contractors as a condition of regulatory approval for their construction project, denial of the petition is affirmed as the trial court correctly found under section 1720 that the entire project is a "public work," but that the requirement to pay prevailing wages is restricted to the construction of the public facilities and infrastructure improvements whether publicly or privately funded.
