The City Council is scheduled to hear activists’ appeals against the next phase of designs for the Navy Broadway Complex redevelopment project in two weeks.

Activists contend that previous environmental studies of the project’s impacts on the surrounding community are inaccurate and outdated, and that new information regarding potential seismic activity, traffic and air quality changes has not been contemplated.

A similar appeal is currently tied up in court, but the City Council has refused the activists’ requests before. In January, the city signed off on the environmental studies.

The newest challenge comes as more detailed designs for the middle two blocks of the four-block project are being vetted. Slated for those blocks are the Navy’s administrative building, two hotels and an office building.

The hearing is scheduled for Oct. 16 at 2 p.m. in the council chambers, located at 202 C St.
