The San Diego City Council is scheduled to vote Monday on a plan that would transform Horton Plaza into a tech hub.

The goal is to keep some of the current stores and maybe some new ones as part of the new development. If the City Council approves the proposal, the developer hopes to complete the first phase by late 2020.
