General Atomics' $40-million gamble on small nukes

The scientists and engineers at General Atomics think the future of nuclear energy is coming on the back of a flatbed truck.

The leadership at the San Diego company, which has been developing nuclear technologies for more than 60 years, has already spent $40 million in the expectation that its ambitious plans for the next generation of reactors will actually work.

“We have technology that we think is going to qualitatively change the game," said Christina Back, vice president of nuclear technologies and materials at General Atomics.

East Village South: Non-stadium plan revealed

As the Chargers’ $1.8 billion stadium-convention center heads toward the November ballot, an alternate vision will be presented Saturday for downtown’s East Village.

The so-called “East Village South Focus Plan” envisions apartment towers, high-tech start-ups, innovation-economy office compounds, new parks and plazas and maybe a convention annex or arena.

Chargers can lose — and win

In the absence of one or both of those solar-system-changing events, I can’t picture the Chargers’ “convadium” measure getting even 50 percent, let alone the two-thirds majority that appears to be the legally required margin for victory.

The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce’s odd seal of approval notwithstanding, there are too many deep teams lined up to defeat the Chargers downtown stadium play.

From tax hawks to populist pols of both parties to those who envision a vital East Village where people live and work, the long knives are out.

So why are the Chargers going through this democratic wringer, spending several millions of dollars only to have their helmets handed to them on a plate?

SDSU raises near-record $130M for research

San Diego State University pulled in $130 million for research during fiscal 2015, the second highest figure in campus history and the largest figure of any California State University campus.

As part of the CSU system, San Diego State is primarily devoted to teaching. But the campus decided in the 1980s to develop a large research program that has challenged some University of California campuses for money, as well as those in the CSU.

The $24.9 million SDSU obtained from the National Institutes of Health in fiscal 2015 was higher than UC Riverside and UC Santa Barbara got from the same agency

SDSU received money across a wide variety of academic disciplines. The contracts include the start of a $10 million endowment fund that will be used to study disparities in the public's access to health care. The campus also got $2 million to search for early development signs of autism, and $2 million to help in the development of new antibiotics.

Voters to decide Lilac Hills project
Supervisors vote to place Valley Center development on November ballot

County voters will decide in November whether more than 1,700 homes should be built on a huge swatch of mostly agricultural land in Valley Center.

The Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 Tuesday to put a citizens initiative on the ballot that would clear the way for the controversial Lilac Hills Ranch housing development, which has been in the planning stages for a decade. Supervisor Bill Horn abstained, after the state determined last year that he had a conflict of interest because he owns property nearby.

Lilac Hills Ranch calls for 1,746 homes, plus commercial space and parks and trails to be built on 608 acres roughly 12 miles north of Escondido just east of Interstate 15. Current zoning would allow for only 110 homes on the land.

Tijuana prepares for new Bus Rapid Transit system
Main route will lead from the U.S. border to eastern Tijuana

Tijuana is preparing to launch a major overhaul of its chaotic public transportation system before the year is out, and the centerpiece will be a 23-mile Bus Rapid Transit route that runs between the downtown area near the U.S. border and the eastern part of the city.

The project’s first phase, to be completed over the next couple of years, will serve some 120,000 passengers a day, or about 30 percent of the city’s ridership, Mayor Jorge Astiazarán said during a tour of the route this week. The mayor wants the initial stage of the plan, with 51 stations and two terminals, to start offering service before his term ends on Nov. 30.

Stadium, convention initiatives need two-thirds vote
City attorney weighs in on hotel tax ballot measures

Both the Chargers initiative to build a downtown stadium and a second November ballot measure to raise funds for a convention center will require approval of two-thirds of voters as opposed to a simple majority, San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said Friday.

While acknowledging that the legal question will likely be decided by the state Supreme Court, Goldsmith concluded that based on current law, the two measures need a higher threshold for passage because they’re seeking to raise the hotel tax for a specific funding purpose.

FOCUS: SAN DIEGO CONNECTIONS TO THE RIO GAMES
Climate, competition cited as reasons dozens of U.S. and foreign athletes choose to train here

Australia’s BMX team held a media day last week before flying to Brazil for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro that open Friday. It wasn’t in Sydney or Melbourne or the capital of Canberra or on the Gold Coast, where the nation’s bicycle motocross headquarters are.

It was in Chula Vista

It has become a quadrennial pastime for America’s Finest City, embracing its five-ring identity, celebrating the diversity of its athletic legacy, cataloging the number of Olympians who are from here or currently live and train here: two water polo players, three sailors, four volleyball players, runners, jumpers, throwers, BMX cyclists, track cyclists, gymnasts, triathletes.

The count for Rio, including those competing for foreign countries and the part-time rowing contingent, is north of 110 — which is up slightly from London in 2012, which was up from Beijing in 2008, which was up from Athens in 2004.

Let’s pause for some perspective: Only 25 entire countries sent Olympic delegations to London larger than San Diego’s 114-strong presence in Rio; 177 countries sent smaller groups, including Cuba, Greece, Mexico, India and Nigeria.

Another way to look at it: San Diego County has roughly 1 percent of the nation’s population, and about 18 percent of its 555 Olympic athletes in Rio. The Olympic Training Center compiled a list of U.S. athletes who used the facility at some point during the previous four-year training quad — some for years, some for weeks — and the number swelled to 200.

Harbor Island vote delayed a month

The future of Harbor Island’s redevelopment has been put off until next month.

Tanya Castaneda, spokeswoman for the San Diego Unified Port District, said the staff report is virtually complete on which of two finalist developer teams should get the right to reshape 57 acres on the man-made peninsula opposite Lindbergh Field.

The finalists are Oliver McMillan and Sunroad Enterprises. But with a key member of one of the teams unable to attend the port board’s Tuesday meeting, the vote will be rescheduled for Sept. 13.

Hotel industry study critical of Chargers stadium plan

The Chargers’ plan for a downtown stadium-convention center will not generate enough meeting business to justify an increase in the hotel tax, concludes a new study funded by the tourism industry.

The analysis, which was prepared by a Chicago-based consulting firm and released on Wednesday, is at odds with rosier predictions by Chargers consultants who also have looked at the financial impact of a convention center built as part of a stadium.

Stone Brewing plans 99-room hotel in Escondido

Stone Brewing announced a 99-room boutique hotel Thursday tied to its Escondido brewery and restaurant, but with the caveat that it’s about more than beer.

It is believed to be the first of its kind — a ground-up property linked to a popular brand and the craft beer movement.

Stone founder Greg Koch said the $26 million, four-story building at 1990 Citracado Parkway will be developed under a license to a new hotel entity, Untitled Hospitality, in partnership with McMillin, an offshoot of the Corky McMillin Companies.

“It’s an environmental experience, a culinary experience, a cultural experience,” Koch said of the project’s vision. “It’s not really beer-themed — you won’t come in and experience flowing rivers of beer or hops motifs all over the place.”
