Navy Broadway Complex Legal Dispute Continues

A community coalition refuses to give up its opposition of a major development on San Diego’s Bay front downtown.

Ian Trowbridge is co-chair of the Navy Broadway Complex Coalition. He says the group has filed a letter of intent to appeal a court decision that dismissed their call for more environmental review.

“The original environmental report was completed in 1992 ,” Trowbridge says, “ and put very simply Judge Prager seems to think nothing has changed in San Diego since 1990. We strongly disagree with the Judge’s decision”

The group will appeal the Judge’s ruling, for several reasons: the significant increase in traffic since 1992, and the fact that the environmental report does not address the increase in greenhouse gases, also there is a known earthquake fault that may threaten the site.

Developer Doug Manchester is contracted to build a new headquarters for the Navy on the bay front property, as well as several high rise hotels.
