More Bad News in San Diego


San Diego redevelopment officials are using the threat of taking private property to compel a laundry business in Little Italy to negotiate selling its land to make way for a condominium and retail project.

The board of the Centre City Development Corp., the city's downtown development agency, voted unanimously last week to give the owners of Alsco, a linen and uniform laundry with 150 employees, a month to reply to the demand.
