Chargers Propose New Joint-Use Stadium Plan To California Coastal Commission
Published September 6, 2013
DO THE MESS AROUND? In San Diego, Nick Canepa writes Fabiani and the Chargers "now are more hopeful than they’ve been in years," as they have found a "powerful business partner completely onboard the franchise’s cruise." Colony Capital is "one of the most respected real estate investment firms in the world," and they "aren’t going to mess around" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 9/6). Also in San Diego, Matthew Hall writes reaction to the proposal "was immediate and divided." It is an "old idea -- and one that [was] met with opposition two years ago -- but there are two new wrinkles." There is an "election for a new mayor of San Diego in November and two, the California Coastal Commission will hold a hearing on the existing convention center plans in October." There was "no discussion of how the proposal would be financed" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 9/6).
