The group of community activists continues to fight to force the City of Santa Ana to bring a special election, this after city officials changed the requirements with regard to the building of the One Broadway Plaza project, a 37-story office tower in the city.
The construction of Orange County’s tallest building is now back on track. The California Fourth District Court of Appeals has ruled in favor to the City of Santa Ana and ordered Superior Court Judge Derek W. Hunt to vacate his ruling repealing revisions to the One Broadway Plaza Development Agreement.
A Coalition for Accountable Government Ethics (CAGE) filed suit against the City of Santa Ana, charging that the City acted in violation of law by amending the voter-approved initiative/ordinance without submitting the question to a vote of the public. Simply put, CAGE is claiming that the City Council did not have the authority to amend the One Broadway Plaza Development Agreement, because the agreement was part of the voter approved initiative, Measure A.
