Another day, another battle for the Oakland A’s.
The port operators and trucking firms filed a lawsuit against the new Howard Terminal waterfront ballpark claiming the the project was improperly approved.
Mike Jacob, vice president of the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association, which represents port workers, said there should have been more analysis before approval.
“There is absolutely no question that there are significant environmental impacts,” said Jacob. “It’s more complicated than the A’s and the city would like it to be. They are trying to push something through, but that’s not how you do regional planning and that’s not how our system is set up.”
Nikki Medoro welcomes Mike Jacob to talk about Pacific Merchant Shipping Association’s participation in the lawsuit to stop development at Oakland’s Howard Terminal.
