At a video meeting on Tuesday March 24, 2020 the Concord City Council voted against extending the exclusive negotiating agreement with Lennar to be the Master Developer of the Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS).
According the the SF Business Times:
The city and the Contra Costa Building Trades Council have been at loggerheads with Lennar for several months over how much union labor the developer would use on the $5 billion project.SF Business Times
It is unclear what the path forward will be after this vote.
By refusing to extend an exclusive negotiating agreement with Lennar that expires next week and rejecting demands the developer made in January, the council effectively sent the project back to the drawing board.EastBayTimes.com
The City is going to review the impact of COVID-19 on the city’s finances and also on the Bay Area economy.
