Jul 29 – What Should Become of San Diego Stadium?

NOTE: At the July 29, 2018 meeting the club took the position to oppose Soccer City and Vote No on the Soccer City Initiative, and the club voted to support the SDSU West initiative.

This month we’re excited to feature a great panel of speakers on the upcoming ballot initiatives focused on the site of the current San Diego County Credit Union Stadium – AKA Qualcomm Stadium, Jack Murphy Stadium and originally San Diego Stadium.

Whatever the outcome this November there will be a major change to Mission Valley, and San Diego.


  • Steve Doyle, Southwest Strategies LLC, SDSU West
  • Haley Peterson, Intesa, SDSU Mission Valley
  • Joe LaCava, No on Soccer City

Each of our panelists will give a 10 minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes for questions on their segment. After all the presenters have been heard, there will be an additional 15 minutes for general questions from our members.
