Activists are suing the city of San Diego over the council’s decision to approve a 12-story condo project in Hillcrest, alleging the city government did not properly weigh the impacts of the 301 University Ave. proposal on the surrounding neighborhood.

The city also disobeyed its own zoning laws when the council approved La Jolla Pacific Development Group’s plans for the site at a Sept. 12 meeting, the activists said in a lawsuit Wednesday. You can read the lawsuit here.

Friends of San Diego, the plaintiffs group, said Wednesday that it will ask a Superior Court judge to set aside the City Council’s decision to allow the 96-unit project. The group also wants the court to force the city to conduct a more thorough report of the 301 University Ave. proposal’s environmental impacts on the nearby community.
