SAN FRANCISCO - A citizen task force recommended expansion of the San Diego Convention Center that would be financed by up to $758 million of municipal bonds.

The task force, created by Mayor Jerry Sanders, voted 15 to 1 Monday evening to move the project forward.

The task force did not make a recommendation on a $278 million convention center hotel proposal.
