Another big City Council vote on San Diego’s $520 million Convention Center expansion is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
In the last few days, the road to an expansion became much more complicated. The biggest interloper was the U-T San Diego. On Sunday, in editorials on the front and opinion pages, the paper argued for a grand vision of an expanded Convention Center, new Chargers stadium, new sports arena, an unnamed “civic icon” and much more on the site of the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal. The terminal is the city’s major industrial port and the paper argues maritime activity could still continue there for a while.
Details are scanty, but the paper said promoting its vision will be, “priority No. 1 for U-T San Diego.”
