Join the SDSU Alumni Board Past Presidents Council in vocal opposition to FS Investors’ proposed “SoccerCity” Qualcomm Stadium redevelopment plan in Mission Valley.
The Mission Valley site is the only viable location for SDSU to expand to meet and exceed its research, tech transfer, and other academic goals. These 166 acres represent a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the community and our Alma Mater, which is why our passion is undeniable.
The right redevelopment project could be transformational for the University. Although it sounds good in theory, the FS Investors’ high-density retail, commercial, and housing elements are not aligned with the mission, vision, and future needs of SDSU students and alumni, who are proven economic drivers for the region.
For 120 years, SDSU has produced astronauts, Pulitzer Prize winning journalists, Hall of Fame athletes, leading-edge scientists, and private sector giants. Aztecs are the backbone of this city. This shortsighted, misguided plan does not have to be our fate. Now is the time for trueAztecs to RISE UP!
Let the Mayor and City Councilmembers know: taking the first deal that comes San Diego’s way after the Chargers leave is not a good plan for the long-term. The City and SDSU should work closely to craft a competitive process that is done swiftly and professionally.
