A Superior Court judge ended a 14-year civil battle over growth controls for the county's remaining open space Tuesday by approving a computerized method of evaluating development proposals. Judge Norman L. Epstein approved changes to the county's 1980 General Plan that were negotiated by the county and a coalition of environmentalists and homeowners, calling the settlement "an exciting, innovative solution that seems to me is very much in the public's interest."
