Oakland City Council Extends Planning Period For Stadium Project

Efforts to keep the Raiders in Oakland "took an important step forward" last night when the Oakland City Council by a unanimous vote "extended the planning period" for the proposed Coliseum City project. The planning window was extended an additional 12 months, "along with a six-month administrative extension option." That "gives more evaluation time to a pair of deep-pocketed developers who have expressed late interest in the ambitious project, which would include at least one and as many as three sports venues centered on the Oakland Coliseum complex site" (CSNBAYAREA.com, 10/15).
