Alameda Kills Megadevelopment

New, 6 comments

Alameda voters axed a measure yesterday that would have put 4,500 apartments, condos, and houses on the island, plus a ferry terminal, parks, and all those things you'd expect to see in a megadevelopment. Measure B would have instituted a one-time exception to a 1973 law that prohibits anything bigger than a duplex (!). Though residents reportedly liked the idea, they didn't like the fact that the development agreement with developer SunCal was baked into the measure, rather than set to be hammered out with city staff.
