San Diego's re-development arm, the CCDC, is deciding whether to spend $160,000 on a feasibility study.
The city is taking what may be an important step in building a new stadium for the Chargers, who are looking at a site in the East Village, east of Petco Park, that includes the so-called Wonder Bread building.
On Wednesday, Centre City Development Corporation, will consider hiring a New York company to look into how to pay for the project. San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders has said in the past that no public money will be used to finance a new stadium for the team.
A new stadium is estimated to cost as much as $1 billion.
