Mark it down: January 16

The first chance for the public to scrutinize the Cisco Field plan will come on Tuesday, January 16, according to Argus scribe Chris De Benedetti. The meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. instead of the customary 7:00 p.m. No agenda has been posted, and I wouldn't expect one until the week before the meeting. It'll be interesting to see who shows up, especially because the TV cameras will most likely be rolling. Bring your pencils for the comment cards.

By "scrutinize," I'm sure you mean "provide valuable preliminary input for the betterment of the project for fans and the community," right?

I wouldn't have it any other way, murf. Then again, I don't control the proceedings. If the initial council meeting in December '05 is any indicator, it should be an open and substantive dialogue.

Does City of Fremont show their meetings (including this) live on the internet?

They do webcast the meetings here. I'll update the post to reflect this link.

Can't wait to hear how they'll handle all of the TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC and MORE TRAFFIC. Current stadium right by BART is the way to go. Not builing one in the middle of nowhere with the only way to access by CAR. This will be a DISASTER.

What I can't understand: Why is it that a stadium can be built...lets just say is will cost several hundred million dollars, yet the idea of extending BART to said stadium seems far fetched.

Listen, a hurricane destroying levy's and killing hundreds is a disaster. An earthquake along the Hayward fault resulting in great death and destruction is a disaster.

Getting stuck in an extra 30 to 45 minutes of traffic is an inconvienence. It's not like its something you don't put up with anyway. While mass transit is a nice feature, it's not the panacea some seem to think it is.

Priorities my man, priorities. The A's weren't one in Oakland, and it remains to be seen if they will be in Fremont. But at least they are trying.

Extending BART to this site would require a right angle 2 mile dead end spur line which would only carry riders a couple of hours ,80 days a year . They could do it if everyday systemwide BART riders cheerfully agree to pay $20 a ride to subsidize this !
