Comm. for Green Foothills v. Santa Clara County Bd. of Supervisors, No. S163680

In mandamus proceedings challenging a county's approval of trail developments by Stanford University, arising from the university's application for a permit to add buildings on its campus in 2000, decision of the Court of Appeals is reversed as the filing of a notice of determination (NOD) triggers a 30-day statute of limitations for all CEQA challenges to the decision announced in the notice, and here, the Committee filed its petition more than 30 days after the County reported its approval of the trails agreement in an NOD.
