Has PETCO Park Been A Good Investment?

In the near future, the eastern edge of downtown San Diego might be transformed with a brand new Chargers stadium. The City of San Diego has already built one stadium downtown and is considering building another. But has PETCO Park been a good investment?

There is no possibility of a football stadium being in built east of Park Blvd. Please look at any reasonably accurate map of the area. How does any one propose to move 62,000 PEOPLE INTO AND OUT OF THAT VERY CONFINED AREA? ACCESS FROM THE NEAREST FREEWAY ALLOWS FOR A TRICKLE OF TRAFFIC. WHEN THEY CAME OUT WITH AN ARCHITECT'S SKETCH OF A THEORETICAL STADIUM, THEY SHOWED NO CARS IN THE ARTIST'S RENDERING.--GOOD IDEA. i DARE ANYONE TO FIND THE LOCATION OF THE THEORETICAL STADIUM AND THEN TRY TO FIND A SET OF DIRECTIONS FROM YOUR HOUSE OR JOB OR WHEREVER TO THE STADIUM SITE. tRY TO GET GOOGLE'S DIRECTIONS.. i JUST DID:.
1. Head west on Lauretta St toward Azusa St
0.1 mi
2. Turn left at Mollie St/Riley St
0.2 mi
3. Take the 1st right onto Napa St
358 ft
4. Turn left at Linda Vista Rd
0.1 mi
5. Continue onto Morena Blvd
0.2 mi
6. Take the ramp onto I-5 S
5.8 mi
7. Take exit 15A toward Imperial Ave
0.2 mi
8. Merge onto 17th St
164 ft
9. Turn right at Imperial Ave
0.2 mi
10. Take the 2nd right onto 14th St
Destination will be on the right
226 ft

131 14th St San Diego, CA 92101 EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD WILL HAVE TO USE STEPS 6 THROUGH 10 TO GET TO THE THEORETICAL STADIUM SITE....
