Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2007 | On Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2007, the City Council voted against our appeal of the Navy Broadway Complex. Therefore, a valid fault investigation for the project will never come before the City Council. A valid fault investigation may be turned in before building permits are issued, or more likely will never be turned in for approval before construction starts on the billion-dollar-plus project. As the Navy and Manchester Financial told the California Coastal Commission, no coastal development permits are required because the project is on federal land. The City Council, with the exception of Donna Frye and Toni Atkins, said it was not their responsibility to require a valid fault investigation be turned in during the CEQA checklist stage or before buildings are sited for a master plan. Even though there is substantial proof of active faulting on-site, and six of the seven buildings may have to be moved due to the required 100-foot fault buffer distances.
