As the landscape continues to change on this subject, it is important to keep the facts straight which is why I felt it is a good time to provide an update. Remember, this is one man’s opinion. There is nothing here but a love for San Diego and the Chargers (despite their current record). Below are my thoughts.
Horton Plaza served as the catalyst for San Diego’s development in the recent past and it became the anchor for future development. Not only did it impact downtown but it also shepherded a resurgence in leisure market getaways including Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, and La Jolla.
This is one man’s opinion. I am an Independent, so Democrats and Republicans alike will disagree with me. I am not a member of the Lodging Industry Association or the San Diego Hotel Motel Association, so I am not privy to their positions on these issues and many of them will disagree with me. Lastly, I do not own any land or property downtown that would give me any reason to prefer a certain outcome.
