Health First v. March Joint Powers Authority, 174 Cal. App.4th
The Fourth District Court of Appeal has reversed a Superior Court’s decision and found that the March Joint Powers Authority’s (March JPA) approval of a design plan for an industrial facility was a ministerial act not subject review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Court of Appeal ruled that final project approval is a ministerial act when the agency’s review of the proposed development does not involve the exercise of judgment or deliberation and is merely a determination of whether a project conforms with existing design guidelines and land use plans.
