Big money wants the Qualcomm Stadium site

The Mission Valley soccer stadium proposal has lobbyists lined up to be heard by city leaders.
The Mission Valley soccer stadium proposal has lobbyists lined up to be heard by city leaders.

The ongoing battle over whether to turn over the 165-acre, publicly owned Qualcomm Stadium site to a group of La Jolla hedge-fund managers seeking to develop a soccer stadium and commercial complex has been very good to influence peddlers, based on this year’s city lobbyist filings.

Big-money special pleaders range from the law firm of Latham and Watkins, seeking rezones on behalf of Orange County’s Irvine Company for the Village at Mission Valley, to giant Australian shopping-mall owner Westfield, which wants “land use entitlements for redevelopment of Mission Valley Center,” though “specific entitlements [are] not yet determined.”

The nonprofit Climate Action Campaign, whose website says it “has a simple mission: to stop climate change,” seeks “consistency with Climate Plan goals” in the Mission Valley community plan update, while land owner H.G. Fenton is monitoring the update process to “ensure density and zoning allow for future growth.”

Similarly, the Building Industry Association says it wants to “ensure appropriate densities within the Mission Valley Plan update”; for its part, Sudberry Development is trying to obtain “an Affordable Housing Agreement regarding the Quarry Falls Community in Mission Valley.”
