Friends etc. Gardens v. San Mateo Community College Dist., 214061

In a case in which a community college district proposed a district-wide facilities improvement plan that called for demolishing certain buildings and renovating others, but changed the plan after approval, the Court of Appeals decision invalidating the district's approval of the changes after concluding they did not require the preparation of a subsequent or supplemental environmental impact report (EIR) under Public Resources Code section 21166 and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines section 15162, is reversed where the Court of Appeal erred in its application of this new project test.
