Today is the first business day that the Chargers can officially consider overtures made by cities outside of San Diego County.

Have they heard anything yet, as of midday today?

“Not so far,” says team special counsel Mark Fabiani.

Here, the team continues to show interest in local sites. It has offered to pay for Chula Vista to hire a consultant to analyze the sites now being considered in the South Bay. A number of sites are being eyed right now, including undeveloped plots near the newest home developments in east Chula Vista and waterfront chunks of land. One vast, largely vacant waterfront plot is owned by Goodrich Industries. Another plot is owned by the port and currently houses the South Bay Power Plant.

The team continues to talk to National City, too, but prospects have so far been dimmed by a high cost estimates for infrastructure. The city also is expected to soon release the results of a survey measuring its residents’ interest in further pursuing a stadium deal.
