The San Diego Chargers are putting together a Citizen's Initiative plan to help finance an NFL stadium and noncontiguous Convention Center expansion in the East Village area of downtown San Diego.
It's March 28th! That seems late.
Will the Chargers reveal their plan today? Maybe! Maybe not! It might rely entirely on whether or not the Mayor gets service in whatever foreign country he's in.
#Chargers trying to firm up additional support before release of stadium initiative. One issue is the Mayor is on vacation.— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) March 28, 2016
Still very good possibility something released by #Chargers today. They've evidently crossed T's & dotted I's, but trying to firm up things.— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) March 28, 2016
Things are not yet firm, apparently. Perhaps Mayor Kevin Faulconer is the one needed to firm them up. Perhaps he's the only man who knows how to cross a T or dot an I.
Either way, the world waits with bated breath to see the renderings the team has made of a new downtown NFL stadium next to Petco Park. Because, at this point, it seems that we have a really good idea of how the team is planning on paying for it and getting the ballot voted through with a simple majority.
4:06PM UPDATE: Sorry, not today.
Told to not expect #Chargers stadium announcement today. This is like sitting in traffic. We know we'll get there soon, just taking longer.— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) March 28, 2016
