In his first State of the City address Wednesday night San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer addressed one of the hottest issues in San Diego, and that is getting the Chargers a new stadium.

Amidst a lot of speculation of the team moving to Los Angeles, Faulconer believes the decision will be made during his term.

“It’s time for us, as a community, to come together to decide the future of the Chargers in San Diego,” Faulconer said. “This decision will be made on my watch as mayor.”

Faulconer’s plan is to compose a task force of civil leaders to reach a decision on the stadium by this fall.

The two options will be building on the current Mission Valley spot, or building a new stadium in conjunction with the Convention Center.

The Chargers, though, are not sold on the Mayor’s plan.

In an interview with Mighty 1090 AM on Thursday,  Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani discussed why his side is skeptical of the plan.

The task force will look for a “good and fair” deal for San Diego taxpayers, and are expected to come to a decision in the fall.
