    Chula Vista officials will continue studying the pros and cons of a $1 billion Chargers stadium, but they'll do so with the voices of their constituents ringing in their ears.

    Last night, before about 100 people at City Hall, the City Council voted 4-0 – Councilman Jerry Rindone was on vacation – to accept a $220,000 stadium study paid for by the Chargers and prepared by the design firm Cooper, Robertson &amp; Partners. The New York-based firm evaluated four select sites on their size, transportation access, environmental issues, parking potential, commercial development prospects and availability. Two sites made the cut.

    One is a vacant 500-acre parcel one mile east of state Route 125, about a half-mile south of the Windingwalk at Otay Ranch neighborhood. The other is a 139-acre bayside parcel where the South Bay Power Plant operates.

    The Chargers also are considering Oceanside for a stadium. The team wants to select a site by the end of the year and place a stadium proposal on the November 2008 ballot for voters in the selected city.
