Santa Clara To Move Forward With Stadium Project

After several hours of listening to opinions on both sides of the issue, the Santa Clara City Council voted 6-to-1 early this morning to move forward with a proposal to build a stadium for the 49’ers. A measure could be placed on the ballot in the upcoming year, allowing voters to weigh in on the 916-million stadium.

Those who oppose the plan say the deal would be bad for the city because the cost is significantly higher than originally advertised. Meanwhile, San Francisco city officials are still trying to broker a deal with the team to build a new stadium on property at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.

The 49’ers have had their headquarters in Santa Clara for years but have continued to play home games at Candlestick Point in San Francisco since the 1971 season.
