Gillespie Field is expansive and would have far better uses for our community, our region and our country than housing and expanding an airport.  A better way to use this land is to bring in businesses and venues that would generate money to boost the local economy and give the community the opportunity to shop local, travel closer for concerts and/or sporting events and keep money here in the region and therefore in the country.

The Chargers have been looking for a viable place for a new stadium.  Gillespie Field with its open spaces would be ideal for a new stadium and parking for tailgating.  Public transportation would be close given the proximity of the trolley stations to Gillespie Field. During the off-season or away games, the schools within the region can use the field and the facilities to play and the stadium could also be used as a concert or event venue.  This would also be an ideal place for a venue for official off-roading events and for personal off-roading. If not a stadium, a training facility can be built which can be used by professional, minor and local teams.

Other uses would be to create a space for family-friendly businesses and restaurants including a multi-screen movie theater, which Santee and Lakeside currently do not have. This space could include areas for a Farmer’s Market featuring local crafters and locally grown and made produce and food stuffs, a Swap Meet where local business and residents can sell their wares, or even for car clubs to hold car shows.

For family entertainment that would draw in crowds from all over the County and beyond, a water park can be built, which would be especially appropriate during those hot summers. Space around the water park can be used to create areas for pet parks, playgrounds, picnics, and again, Farmer’s Markets, Swap Meets and Car Shows.

Given the proximity of this area to various Casinos within East County, building businesses or venues in place of the airport would keep business in East County. Those who travel to play and/or stay at these casinos will have restaurants, shops or venues closer to them, keeping them from having to, for example, drive to Downtown, La Jolla, Mission Valley, etc.

Another idea is to draw in big businesses such as Cabela’s – World’s Foremost Outfitter. There is nothing like this store in California or the West Coast and would be a big draw for all of the outdoor enthusiasts on the side of the country.

Chargers see countywide stadium vote in 2013



Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani told a roomful of regional leaders Wednesday that a new football stadium is more likely to get built with political and financial support from around the county, and that a public vote on the venue would almost certainly slip to 2013 — when a fresh crop of politicians would be joining the debate.

Indoor skydiving coming to downtown San Diego: Wind facility to be built in East Village


Construction on a new indoor skydiving attraction is slated to begin January 2015 with an anticipated completion of Christmas 2015.

Buzz Fink, a local businessman and owner of the outdoor SkyDive San Diego in Jamul, stated he is excited about the plan. "It's close to the ball park, it's close to the library, it's close to the San Diego Convention Center and it's close to the trolley," Fink added.

The facility isn't going to be only for tourists and local thrill seekers. A special training area is going to be set up for military personnel.
