Jim Waring, the land-use chief for Mayor Jerry Sanders, said he thinks the public has the right to appeal his development staff’s decision that the environmental studies for the Navy Broadway Complex suffice.

It’s a new nuance to the NBC polemic and differs from what we’ve reported. The difference in our reporting and his position is that he didn’t think an appeal could be made straight to the City Council. Today, he said CCDC’s decision on Wednesday to affirm his staff’s environmental determination makes an appeal to the council prudent.

He said he will stand by his staff’s decision, but will work with the City Attorney’s Office and the City Council to schedule an appeal, which a local activist made today.
