Published CEQA Decision Upholds Use of the Infill Exemption

In Protect Tustin Ranch v. City of Tustin (2021) 70 Cal.App.5th 951, the California Court of Appeal upheld the use of CEQA’s infill exemption for a Costco Gas Station project.  The City of Tustin was successfully represented by Woodruff Director Ricia R. Hager.  The opinion is the first to interpret and clarify the project site size component of the infill exemption, and will provide much needed guidance to public agencies, project applicants, and trial courts.
