Fremont Argus, May 15, 2007
Two public Fremont City
Council meetings have been held regarding the proposed
A's stadium development project.
It would be just southwest
of Auto Mall Parkway at Interstate 880.
I am concerned about the
impact the additional traffic would have, and the
financial costs to the city of additional public safety
may be possible, although perhaps not probable given the
lack of proximate public transportation, and the
propensity of public officials to accept rosy
projections from developers.
I was surprised by the degree
to which the Fremont City Council is embracing the
project before serious financial analysis and an
environmental impact report are available.
If you have concerns that the
City Council may be less than diligent — in the face of
such money momentum — to balance the benefits of
increased economic activity against the potential
impacts on the quality of life in Fremont and the local
communities, please contact the city clerk at
firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 284-4063 to request
to be put on the list to receive notification of public
meetings on the subject.
