Ballpark Economic Impact

Bill Rhoda from Conventions, Sports and Leisure(CSL) walked the Good Neighbor Committee through both the economics of modern ballparks in Major League Baseball and the specifics of the economic impact of the proposed ballpark in San Jose.

 
The Committee spent time discussing the potential economic impacts of a ballpark, and the potential office alternative, and the connection to creating a a great place in the Diridon Station Area.
