A notice from the A’s and the City of Oakland:
NEW BALLPARK COMMUNITY MEETING
Councilmember Lynette McElhanney and the Oakland Athletics invite you to attend a meeting with representative from the A’s to discuss the proposed new ballpark site at Howard Terminal in West Oakland.
Sunday, October 7, 2018
1 PM to 3 PM
7th West Restaurant 1255 7th St. Oakland, CA 94706
Complimentary food and refreshments will be served.
For more information contact:
I hope @DaveKaval and the A’s are engaging the City of Oakland and @LibbySchaaf about solving the problems at Howard Terminal instead of continuing to talk *around* the problems. And I hope that discussion becomes public, because it needs to be.

7th West happens to be only a few blocks east of the West Oakland BART station, and about nine blocks northwest of Howard Terminal. You’ll notice some railroad tracks running right past 7th West, as the Amtrak maintenance facility and a major Union Pacific rail yard are on the other side of 880.
If you’re planning to go, take notes and report back. Thanks.
