            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Mary E. Chiccelly, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED FOR FURTHER PROCEEDINGS CONSISTENT WITH THIS OPINION.  Heard by May, P.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (15 pages)

            The City Council of Cedar Rapids approved a change to the future land use map, allowing Cargill, Inc. an industrial use to be built in an existing residential neighborhood.  Robert and Kathryn Hogg, and later other neighbor landowners, challenged the city council’s decision on writ of certiorari in the district court.  Without a hearing, the district court affirmed.  OPINION HOLDS: We do not reach the substantive issues raised by the Hoggs and other landowners.  Because the Iowa Rule of Civil Procedure 1.1410 requires the district court to hold hearing, we remand to the district court for further proceedings.
