Thursday, Nov. 30, 2006 | Let’s revisit the Qualcomm option for a new Chargers stadium. Having observed how many other NFL towns have torn down and built new adjacent to existing stadium sites, lets stop running around the county and get the deal done in Mission Valley. Having spent $500 million plus on the trolley line to SDSU, it is imperative to maximize the return on this investment and capitalize on the centrality of the Qualcomm site. A new stadium and resulting mixed use urban village including faculty and student housing for SDSU, on a major transportation corridor makes enormous sense. The property tax revenue stream will help replenish our city’s strained coffers and the resulting development will provide a home to Charger and Aztec football for decades, much needed new housing options, retail and office space and will allow San Diego to be a frequent host in the Super Bowl rotation.
