ORANGE CITIZENS PREVAIL: CALIFORNIA SUPREME COURT AFFIRMS THE POWER OF THE GENERAL PLAN
Orange, CA – The California Supreme Court today issued its decision in Orange Citizens for Parks and Recreation v. Superior Court. The unanimous decision reaffirms decades of well-established planning law and supports the right of voters to use the referendum process to challenge local land use decisions. “Today’s decision supports the rights of Californians to have a say in local land use decisions, whether through the process of updating a city or county’s general plan or through the initiative and referendum process,” said attorney Robert “Perl” Perlmutter of Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger LLP, who represented the Orange Citizens for Parks and Recreation and Orange Park Association in the case.
