STARTING THE CHARGE: In San Diego, Matthew Hall reports the San Diego Centre City Development Corp. (CCDC), the city's downtown redevelopment arm, yesterday "secured the first approval in a series it needs to spend larger amounts of money repairing blight downtown," and "chief among the beneficiaries of the effort would be" the Chargers. The CCDC's Budget/Finance & Administration Committee yesterday voted 5-0 "to embark on a process that could take 15 to 18 months." CCDC Chair Fred Maas said the effort is "about a stadium" downtown for the Chargers, but also is "about things bigger than a stadium" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/14).
