    Alameda has once again canceled another contract with a developer who promised to bring thousands of homes and offices to the former Navy base.

    The plan was to build 4,800 homes, a 60-acre sports complex, offices, parks, schools, a ferry terminal and other amenities.

    "I don't see how they're going to get all that traffic through two lanes of the (Posey) tube," Alameda Mayor Beverly Johnson said. "I don't want people to come up to me in the grocery store and say, 'You're the person who ruined Alameda.' "

    Back to the drawing board.
