San Diego State Criticized Over Expansion Plans

San Diego State is drawing fire over its growth plans, which include a hotel and faculty and staff housing:

Critics of San Diego State University's expansion plans say the university is underestimating the impact of the project on traffic, neighborhoods and the environment.

The city of San Diego, Alvarado Hospital and a community council have already filed lawsuits over the expansion, which is slated for a vote by the California State University trustees Sept. 18.

Nevermind that local housing and hotels would actually reduce traffic since more people could walk to campus *and* be more environmentally friendly. I get the feeling the local hotels and real estate agents are really the ones behind the criticism.
