 SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, City Councilman Mark Kersey and Jerry Sanders of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce are asking the City Council adopt a plan to spend $5 billion over 30 years on streets, parks and other infrastructure projects.

The council is scheduled to consider whether to place the so-called "Rebuild San Diego" plan on the June ballot at their Tuesday meeting.

Faulconer endorsed the plan earlier this month in his State of the City address. He, Kersey and Sanders described the plan in more detail Monday afternoon.

The spending plan, which was originally developed by Kersey, would designate money from sales taxes, savings from municipal pension reform and growth in general revenue for infrastructure projects. The plan does not involve any tax hikes, according to Kersey.

    Once again they are playing taxpayers like the fools that we are! They have squandered out tax money on lavish office buildings and luxury county vehicles that they beat to hell! They give away public land and NOW THEY WANT US TO PAY MORE? How about they budget what we give them like we do with our meager incomes and quit playing us like fools! SAY NO to fraudulent spending and YES to spending our tax money wisely! I SAY NO TO ANY NEW TAXES, BONDS, or ASSESSMENTS! These kill our economy and are the root to inflation here in San Diego!

      Do you have a reading disability? What part of “the plan does not involve any tax hikes” involves new taxes? Learn to read, genius.

    We need to concentrate on expanding the highways, which is a bummer, but all the greed in real estate development around here has gotten out of hand. Too many people and not enough roads to accomidate them. That, or lets do some high speed railway right down the middle of the highway.
