Posted: May 11, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, City officials ask Superior Court to review competing Mission Valley development plans SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — City officials are asking the San Diego Superior Court to review two competing development plans for the city’s SDCCU Stadium site in Mission Valley.Both the SoccerCity and SDSU West proposals have garnered enough signatures of support to qualify for the November ballot. Whichever measure receives the most votes — assuming it exceeds 50 percent — will win the rights to negotiate with the city to redevelop the Mission Valley site.The City Attorney’s Office filed petitions asking the court to determine whether the initiatives “impermissibly exceed the power to act through an initiative and whether they impermissibly conflict with state law and the San Diego City Charter.”“By seeking pre-election guidance from the courts, the city hopes to avoid a situation where voters act on measures that are later found to be legally invalid,” City Attorney Mara Elliott said. “Even if the court finds no problems with the measures, it may narrow post-election issues, which will save taxpayer money and potentially expedite city actions to implement a successful measure.”The SDSU West plan proposes the sale of about 132 acres of city property to San Diego State University or an auxiliary organization to clear the way for a new 35,000-seat Aztecs football stadium. The facility would also accommodate professional soccer, concerts as well as other events, and could expand to accommodate a future NFL franchise.The SoccerCity initiative, meanwhile, proposes a 99-year property lease and construction of a 23,500-seat soccer stadium that could be enlarged for football games.Both proposals also include provisions for housing, commercial and park development.

Disney Disney Plus presale demand Tuesday knocked out the the Disney fan-club website offering discounted preorders for the Disney streaming service launching Nov. 12. The outage of the D23 website, which acted as the entry point for the deal, lasted about three hours.Disney said the outage occurred because of an unexpected surge in traffic for a discounted presale offer for Disney Plus, the streaming video service that Disney is launching to compete with the likes of Netflix. The “Founders Circle” deal significantly cut the price of the service if you commit to a three-year subscription.The D23 site and the Disney Plus service itself don’t share backend technology, so one of them crashing under heavy traffic doesn’t necessarily presage bandwidth problems for the other. And the offer was mostly targeted at Disney fan-club members, the people most likely to flood the company with interest. Disney Plus Disney
