Four appeals have been filed against the $28 million first phase of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan in the Columbia District in Downtown San Diego. The appeals said to came from two members of the public and two commissioners. The San Diego Unified Port spokesman Ron Powell said appeals were expected but the Port of San Diego hopes the commission will rule in favor of the project.
The San Diego City Councilman Kevin Faulconer, who is a part of the board that oversees the Embarcadero plan, said through a spokesman that he was disappointed that appeals have been filed and will delay a construction start. Officials have hoped construction on improvements along western Broadway and Harbor Drive between Navy and B Street piers could be completed in 2013.
