Santa Clara city leaders will have some more things to think about as they consider a new stadium for the 49ers.
A draft environmental report says a proposed 68,500-seat stadium in Santa Clara for the 49ers would significantly increase traffic, noise and air pollution on game days and during other events.
The report was posted to the Santa Clara city Web site Thursday. It recommends officials encourage fans and stadium workers to use public transportation. The report also recommends limits on tailgating.
The Santa Clara City Council must approve the environmental report before a referendum on a new stadium can be put to a public vote. City officials are aiming for a vote next year.
