Speaking of news updates on already-dormant stories:
The state’s decision to end redevelopment has put the fate of Tailgate Park, a 1,040-space parking lot next to Petco Park, in question as the city may have to put the site up for sale to the highest bidder rather than include a portion of it as part of the 14-acre footprint needed to build a $1 billion stadium.
That’s a new San Diego Chargers stadium, mind you, a plan that was already put in question when California eliminated its redevelopment agencies last year. Now, though, the Chargers could be lacking a site, in addition to lacking $1 billion. Whether that’s a significant step backwards I’ll leave to up to readers to decide for themselves.
