Alameda Journal: Councilman [Matarrese] opposes SunCal proposal for Alameda Point


An Alameda city councilman has come out against the plan by SunCal Companies for the redevelopment of Alameda Point, saying the project could put the city on the financial hook.

The about-face by Frank Matarrese — who endorsed the project in May — follows a similar reversal by Mayor Beverly Johnson, plus it comes in the wake of the Chamber of Commerce announcing its opposition to SunCal's proposed ballot measure.

"We are going to be left holding the bag and no way to pay for it," Matarrese said.
