Chamber Endorses SDSU West Initiative

The Chamber’s Board of Directors voted August 16th to support the SDSU West initiative. Both SDSU West and SoccerCity proposals were presented, and went through a review process that included the Chamber’s Infrastructure, Housing and Land Use Sub-Committee, a special ad-hoc committee, Public Policy, and the Board of Directors. In a statement announcing the endorsement, Chamber President and CEO Jerry Sanders said, “the redevelopment of the Mission Valley site will have a long-term impact on the entire San Diego region and we want to ensure that the plan that moves forward is in the best interest of businesses and the San Diego community as a whole. After thorough review of both proposals our Board of Directors determined that SDSU West represents the greatest economic benefit for the future growth and development of the region.”
