The Island: On Point: Point payments


Last week, I wrote a post about campaign expenditures for and against the proposed ballot measure to develop Alameda Point, which got folks talking about the payments developer SunCal makes to help cover the city’s costs for working on the Point development plans.

Some of the money is used to pay the staff costs of moving the development along - which has some people concerned that staff is being unduly influenced operate at SunCal’s behest.

A list that details the amount of SunCal’s money that could be used to pay portions of city staff salaries has been making the rounds, and one commenter linked to it from the site (it’s on the last page of the city’s Exclusive Negotiating Agreement with SunCal). So I called to check it out.
