Abstract
This article argues that while mandatory referenda may be legal, it is an unnecessary step that thwarts zoning legislation. The article further argues that the Supreme Court's conclusion in Eastlake v. Forest City Enterprises, Inc. is not a realistic vision of the zoning process. Rather the previous standards of Euclid v. Ambler Realty Co. and Moore v. East Cleveland are sufficient to ensure an efficient process of municipal management.
