Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s actions have netted little in the way of prospects for new housing, let alone provided for the kind of supply increases that might affect affordability. His density bonus program, though, is hailed as a model for other cities.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer found a tax hike he likes — specifically an increase to the hotel-room tax to fund a new joint convention center and stadium in East Village. The mayor talked with Scott Lewis Monday about whether he prefers East Village to Mission Valley, how enforceable the concessions he won from the team are and more.

In his 2015 State of the City address, Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced a challenge called Innovate San Diego. The person or group whose idea did the most to improve housing, infrastructure or entrepreneurship in San Diego would win $1 million. But the $1 million never materialized and the challenge never happened.
