San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio says the City Council should either end or reauthorize the downtown library, saying the project has “exceeded the original legislative authorization” granted in 2002.

DeMaio, who opposes the downtown library, said the project has “deviated significantly” from the original plan’s timeline and design, namely through the potential inclusion of a school. He’s asked Council President Ben Hueso to put the item on the council’s agenda so it can terminate the project or renew authorization.

The San Diego Unified school board, during a closed-door meeting Tuesday, is slated to discuss the possibility of putting a charter school in the library.
