SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The people behind the SoccerCity initiative were responding Monday to a new assessment of how much Qualcomm Stadium is worth.

The city hired an independent appraiser who said the site is valued at $110 million, far higher than previous assessments.

The backers of SoccerCity, led by FS Investors of La Jolla, want to build a smaller stadium for soccer and football, along with a park along the river, housing, offices and commercial space. They've also applied for a Major League Soccer expansion franchise.

With all sides preferring a public vote, the council is scheduled to decide June 19 whether the project will go on a potentially revived special election ballot this fall or be delayed until November 2018 — the next regularly scheduled general election.

The group is holding public informational meetings on the following dates:
