Former councilmember criticizes city's stance on Chargers stadium
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - There is another powerful voice criticizing the way the city is handling the Chargers stadium issue.
Former Councilmember Donna Frye sent a letter to City Hall, telling them to be aware of legal issues and be open-minded about the land around Qualcomm Stadium.
She might not sit on the city council anymore, but Frye is still very much involved in the city.
She's back and taking aim at the way the city is handling a new stadium for the Chargers.
Specifically, the Environmental Impact Plan that some say is being rushed and potentially flawed.
And Frye is joining a growing chorus of people who oppose the way the Chargers Stadium is being handled by the city.
An environmental law firm from Orange County sent off a scathing letter essentially saying the Mission Valley plan is the latest in a string of poor policy decisions that looks for quick approval and avoids state environmental laws.
The law firm goes on to say the city's plan does not describe the on-going legal battles regarding soil and ground water contamination from adjacent property, which has contaminated the Qualcomm site.
The adjacent property is an oil tank farm, that some say, could be a road block until addressed.
Right now, the land along the riverbed is a broken up parking lot.
As for Frye, she's going back to her roots to shake things up a little bit.
