Whoa there Mr. Dutra and all those who want this. You forgot about the people who actually live in Warm Springs, Weibel, Mission San Jose and ANYONE who must run the Gaunlet of I 680 and I880 on a daily basis! Can you imagine adding 10,000 cars to the mix today. I do not wish to be a prisoner in my home, prevented from shopping, or have to stay at work so I don't have to battle bumper to bumper traffic to get home
This reality cannot be brushed off as some unimportant cost. This is a selfish point of view for those who see the stadium as a pancea to our current financial woes. This is an issue for anyone since you will be giving up your quiet neighborhood for nothing. Look at all of the research and you will see that NO STADIUM HAS EVER PRODUCED A NET ECONOMIC BENEFIT FOR THE CITY THAT HOSTS IT. This is a wealth transfer program from the community into the players and Lew Wolf's (A's owner) wallet. Even the A's admit in the last proposal that it would cost the city $1,000,000 per year (total income - total expenses). Bear in mind that this is the fox's interpretation of the cost to guard the hen house. You know that it is far from the actual costs
Check Mr. Dutra's background for conflicts of interest. He and his extended family/business connections have the potential to gain from this deal. I could be off base, but if relevant, I would expect a realtor to provide this forum with a disclosure about any conflicts of interest before a potentially conflicted answer is given.
Hmmm, horrendous traffic, no net economic benefits to residents, crime, litter, noise, drained police. That sure sounds like a great deal to me. Is this really going to be good for home prices close to the stadium, you make up your own mind. For more information on this issue, please go to fremontcitizensnetwork.com
