Alameda Journal: Council OKs Feb. 2 election for SunCal plan


Alameda residents will get to vote on the proposed redevelopment plan for Alameda Point in February after the City Council decided Tuesday to place it on the ballot.

The vote was 3-2, with Councilmembers Lena Tam and Marie Gilmore opposing the February date, saying that having a special election was too expensive and that the council should put the plan on the June 8 general election instead.
