Prop B Falls Short

Proposition B, the plan to build a deck over the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal, was soundly defeated with barely 30% of the vote.

Port District Commissioner Steve Cushman says the developers who put the proposition on the ballot did not succeed in convincing voters the plan was feasible. 

Cushman : I’m really pleased that the citizens of San Diego saw through the most deceptive proposition that I’ve seen in many a year

Cushman says the voters' decision saved the Port from embarking on an expensive lawsuit to block the project. He says the development would have been  illegal because it is on state owned tide lands.
