How Grand is the San Diego Grand Central Plan?

San Diego’s mayor calls it “transformative”.

The Executive Director at SANDAG, says it’s a sign that San Diego is ready for big things.

It’s what’s being called San Diego Grand Central, an expected multi-billion dollar project on 70 acres of Navy land between the airport and Old Town…a huge transportation hub with bus, train and trolley and a people mover kind of monorail kind of thing to and from the airport, along with Navy, government, and corporate office buildings..

It is a big deal, no doubt about it. It’s expected to be a multi-billion dollar project and it will take years to plan, build and complete.

Is it a sign that San Diego is ready for big things and big change?

Could be.With this first small step taken this week toward this grand idea, and other things that are going on.

For instance, San Diego International Airport has been going thru some major transformation, with new terminals, new parking structures and has become a bigger and better airport.And all the squabbling, that never led anywhere, about whether to move the airport is long gone.

And just a few days ago Comic-Con, the city’s largest convention every year, just signed a new deal to stay in San Diego for a few more years which some are saying is a sign that years of efforts to expand the Convention Center may soon bear fruit and with it, a lot more tourists and a lot more money for the local economy.

In other words, so far, it looks like when it comes to the San Diego Grand Central, a lot of people are getting on board.
