2. Dunno. A lot of cities seem to think their convention centers are disposable - Obsolete...

 

the second construction is finished the cries of "It's not big enough!" begin.

The question is "Who benefits economically from the construction of Convention Centers, Stadiums and other large public venues?" While there will always be some trickle-down, how many of the big hotel and restaurant chains that profit from huge conventions and sports events are based in San Diego?

It's just another scam to remove $$$ from the pockets of the people who pay property taxes - we pay for the venues, they reap the profits. Additionally, the tax deals the local cities cut put an additional burden on local residents. It's a huge source of corruption.
