Karen Huff-Willis, chairwoman of the Black Historical Society of San Diego, is calling for an investigation by City Attorney Mike Aguirre into the Centre City Development Corp.’s development deal at 7th Avenue and Market Street downtown. Alternately, she requested a legal opinion about whether CCDC should consider voiding the development contract there.

Huff-Willis cites the involvement of CCDC President Nancy Graham in the negotiations of the deal with the developer, Related of California. Graham, a former business partner with a sister company of Related, met with the company during the deal’s negotiation process, despite saying she was not involved.
