PLANNING COMMITTEE: In S.F., Matier & Ross report the city of Oakland is "on the verge" of putting up $3M for Dallas-based architecture firm HKS to "work their magic and come up with a new stadium and sports complex out at the Coliseum." After a "lengthy competition among six groups," city officials selected HKS, Forest City Enterprises and Oakland-based JRDV Architects to "create a plan for the 750 acres that make up the Coliseum site and the neighboring new-tech development area west of Interstate 880." Oakland Assistant City Administrator Fred Blackwell "hopes to have the exploratory deal before the council by the end of the month" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 2/8).
