The Qualcomm Stadium site is one of the most valuable public assets in San Diego. Redevelopment of this site is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our city. We owe it to ourselves and our future to consider all potential options, rather than settling for the first proposal to come along. The City has one chance to get this right because we will be forced to live with the consequences for the next 100 years.
We need to advance a project that's a good deal for all San Diegans, not just for the investors proposing it. If we don't, the results could be devastating for the Mission Valley community and City of San Diego. FS Investors' plan isn't about soccer; it's about maximizing profits for themselves. It's good for them, but it's a "lose, lose, lose" proposition for the City, taxpayers and SDSU. It must be rejected.
The devil is in the details in the FS Investors plan, and voters need to pay close attention. The following are some of the Coalition's key issues with those exact details. For more information on these issues and others, check out our fact sheet here.
