Well well well, what is this? Could the stadium proposal to keep the San Diego Chargers in the city that loves them finally have some renderings to entice the hell out of the fans?

Sherman said plan includes park, restaurants, hotels,etx. Plan isn't final; meant to help CSAG with options. Said no cost to general fund.— Annie Heilbrunn (@annieheilbrunn) April 1, 2015
I'm not exactly sure why there appears to be an outdoor church/sundial outside of the stadium, nor do I think that normal-sized trolley station is going to cut it consider there is no parking lot (sorry, tailgaters), but color me excited and continually impressed by the efforts of San Diego's politicians to keep the team.
It's worth noting that renderings often end up looking very different from the end product, but the idea in place here of a "Chargers village" surrounding the stadium is one that has been needed for a very long time.
