Officials from the cities of San Diego and National City met earlier this week to discuss how San Diego can assist the South Bay city’s attempts to build a new Chargers football stadium.

Last month, National City Mayor Ron Morrison invited a number of officials in the region to discuss with him the new football stadium. National City hopes to build the stadium on a 52-acre lot owned by the Port District and a private company, but is looking for San Diego (or someone else) to provide the land for the accompanying development that would be used to help finance construction.

Jim Waring, San Diego’s development czar, said officials — including Morrison and San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders — talked about how the cities could work together. Waring and Sanders have talked recently about the possibility of the city providing land in a stadium deal.

No specifics were discussed and no site has been identified, Waring said. “It was very positive but no one made any commitments,” he said.
