The Willits News - NEWS - Local [cached]

According to Paige J. Swartley of the Brandt-Hawley Law Group, requested to review the citys procedures by project opponent Ralph Pisciotta, Falleri should have recommended a mitigated negative declaration, that is, a statement that there would be no harmful impacts if mitigation is in place.

Swartley told The Willits News there is no legal reason why a city cant consider a rezone on its ownwhen no project has been proposed.But even a stand-alone rezone, she said, may include identifiable environmental impact and related mitigation.
