Santa Clara Plays Fair
The city of Santa Clara and the San Francisco 49ers marked a major milestone Thursday by breaking ground on the team’s new stadium.
The financing deal to build a football stadium for the 49ers in Santa Clara will not go before city residents for a vote, a judge ruled on Monday.
Opponents of a new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara have achieved a small victory their efforts to delay or even derail the project.
The City Attorney has ruled that the approved loan cannot be put before voters.
The anti-stadium group ‘Santa Clara Plays Fair’ is holding a weekend-long signature gathering drive to revoke the city’s plans to take out a $850 million construction loan to build the 49ers stadium.
Approval of an $850 million loan package that goes before the Santa Clara City Council on Tuesday night would pave the way for construction of a new 49ers Stadium in 2012.
The 49ers will be back before the Santa Clara City Council Tuesday night for a presentation to get their proposed new stadium moving forward.
