Alameda Journal: City sends default notice to SunCal


City officials have issued a notice of default to SunCal because the Alameda Point development plan the company submitted to the city on Jan. 14 isn't Measure A-compliant.

If SunCal doesn't submit a Measure A compliant plan within 30 days of the notice's Feb. 5 issue date, the city could terminate the exclusive agreement it has to negotiate a Point development deal with the company and explore other options for the former Naval base. Under their agreement, SunCal can challenge that determination.

"The (exclusive negotiating agreement) does not permit an optional entitlement application that does not comply with the city's charter," Interim City Manager Ann Marie Gallant wrote.
