49ers Discuss Possibility Of Stadium In S.F. Suburb Brisbane

49ers Talking With S.F. Suburb
About Building Possible Stadium
Brisbane, California, city leaders said that the 49ers "recently approached them about adding a stadium to a development considered on an old waterfront landfill known as the Baylands," according to Theriault & Swift of the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. 49ers VP/Communications Lisa Lang yesterday said that a stadium in Brisbane "remains a long shot, ... more insurance policy, at this point, than anything else." Lang: "It's about providing more options." Meanwhile, the city of S.F. on June 3 will vote on a stadium redevelopment project at Hunters Point, and Santa Clara, considered the "front-runner" for a 49ers stadium, "hopes to have a financing plan with the team by July" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 5/14). In S.F., David Smith reports Brisbane and the team within the last three weeks have "discussed whether a stadium should be included in a study on the environmental impact of a Universal Paragon Corp. proposal to develop the site" (S.F. EXAMINER, 5/14).
