Plan To Cut California Redevelopment Funds Could Affect Chargers Stadium

PUTTING UP A FIGHT: In San Jose, Lisa Fernandez notes the Santa Clara City Council tomorrow plans to “send a message to Gov. Jerry Brown: Don't take away our stadium money.” City leaders are "doing whatever they can to remind the governor that the 68,500-seat, $937 million" 49ers stadium planned next to the Great America theme park "has been a long-standing project that involves redevelopment funds, and should not be cut under Brown's proposal to do away with redevelopment agencies.” City leaders said that without redevelopment funds, they have “no other public money to tap for the project” (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 2/21).
