The Convention Center task force voted 15-1 tonight in favor of expanding San Diego’s Convention Center. The lone no vote was from San Diego County Taxpayer’s Association President and CEO Lani Lutar. Here’s what the recommendation to Mayor Jerry Sanders says:

Based on seven months of testimony and presentations it is the view of the Taskforce that we recommend to the Mayor that, based on the findings herein, he: finalize the scope and cost of the proposed Convention Center expansion project; work with the primary stakeholders to identify the revenue and financing necessary to bring it to fruition; then move forward on the expansion of the Convention Center.

More to come soon.
