Now that the council has decided to send the proposal to a public vote, there's some question as to when that would happen.
SoccerCity released this statement after the Council's decision:
“Today, the City Council heard hours of incredibly compelling testimony from hundreds of San Diegans who said they wanted to vote on SoccerCity before the MLS selects cities for the league’s final four teams this fall.
We’re proud of the huge, broad coalition of citizens that stood up today against the powerful political establishment who wants to kill the project through delay.
The motion the City Council unanimously passed explicitly allows for future consideration of a special election on SoccerCity this year. We owe it to supporters to continue to fight for their right to cast a vote when it still matters.”
