LOS ANGELES - San Diego officials are scheduled to meet with a private developer today to negotiate a financial strategy to build a $155 million multipurpose sports arena.

San Diego Mayor Susan Golding said she is hopeful that the proposed 18,000-seat San Diego Entertainment and Sports Center, anchored by a National Basketball Association or National Hockey League franchise, could open as early as 1997. The city has no NBA or NHL, franchise.
