Wolff rules out City of Santa Clara

Not sure why the Merc’s Internal Affairs even brought this up. They bothered to ask Lew Wolff if he’d be interested in the City of Santa Clara as a future home, given the Selig letter. As I mentioned on Wednesday, there isn’t enough room for the A’s, 49ers, and Great America. The 49ers and Santa Clara are committed to seeing their project through to this November’s election. A ballpark would require a new EIR whether it were alone or paired with a football stadium. If, hypothetically, Santa Clara County were opened up this summer, Santa Clara the city would be at an immediate disadvantage compared to San Jose. It would have one distinct advantage in that it already controls land under consideration for a stadium. San Jose only has half of the Diridon South site.
