The SDSU West plan ensures that a river park will not only be built, but the entire plan has 90 acres of open space, more than double of what Soccer City is “promising."
Unlike SoccerCity, which intentionally circumvented any public or CEQA review, SDSU has already started the process of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the site.
The SDSU West plan specifically states the University must purchase the land at “Fair Market Value” and will not raise or impose any new or additional taxes on City residents.
According to a regional traffic study, SDSU West will generate far less traffic in Mission Valley than SoccerCity.
SDSU’s economic contributions to our region cannot be understated. San Diego State University has a $5.67 billion annual impact on our region.
The university needs to be able to increase enrollment and improve its facilities, and SDSU West is the ticket to do just that. There is no greater return on investment for a community than education, and SDSU West will provide billions in jobs and revenues.
Much of SDSU West will be focused on creating Research & Tech facilities that are badly needed for the University and our regional economy.
Throughout its history, San Diego’s oldest and largest university has financed and built many of their projects using public/private partnerships that take advantage of alumni contributions, fundraising efforts and revenue bonds. In their most recent project, the South Campus Plaza, SDSU funded the $143 million project with no state funds, tuition fees or taxes.Learn more
