Legal Question in Administrative Law in California

My County Board of Supervisors have started voting approval on development projects that clearly break Placer County Land use law - in this case approving projects that violate Community Plans that for thirty years have not allowed the developments (no more than 4 housing units per acre is now up to 22 housing units per acre). The avenue of filing a Law Suit against them is not a solution at all - so the question is what can the citizens do legally and realistically to stop the BOS from land rape.
