San Diego’s stadium financing options |

San Diego — Recent discussion of how San Diego can pay for a new Chargers stadium has shifted away from traditional tax increases, which need approval from two-thirds of voters, toward different approaches that wouldn’t face that daunting requirement.

They include using a new state economic development tool called an “infrastructure district,” borrowing against new revenues that a modern stadium would create, and getting a large loan from the county that would be paid back later with taxes from development near the stadium.
