In this email update you will find information about the newly released Proposed Major League Ballpark Economic Impact Analysis and a reminder of upcoming meetings.
Ballpark Economic Impact
The Proposed Major League Ballpark Economic Analysis is now available on our website.
The purpose of this analysis is to provide an estimate of the economic and fiscal impacts associated with the development of a proposed Major League Baseball ballpark in the Diridon Station Area. The analysis was conducted by Convention Sports and Leisure International (CSL).
The City Council and Redevelopment Agency Board will discuss the Economic Impact Analysis at the September 15, 2009 City Council/Redevelopment Agency meeting.
The Good Neighbor Committee will receive a presentation from CSL and discuss the Economic Impact Analysis at the September 24, 2009 Good Neighbor Committee meeting.
