Oakland kills Victory Court


Looks like city of Oakland has decided their as yet not even started $450 million Victory Court ballpark project is too expensive now that redevelopment is dead. They have decided to officially end their efforts at Victory court and are rather going to go all in on the even more expensive $2 billion Coliseum City site and try to convince all 3 teams to throw their support, and more importantly money, behind that pipe dream. Despite the fact that MLB was not interested in the Coliseum site but was interested in Victory Court.

So far at Coliseum city they have yet to even approve the funding for an EIR, but they hope to have it on the agenda as soon as possible. However they have delayed the vote on it once already. They claim they can have the EIR completed in 15 months though once they get around to approving starting it (then again they approved the Victory Court EIR once before and never did anything after that).

It really does seem as though the A's are San Jose's to lose at this point due to Oakland's bumbling about. It really is sad to see Oakland's last best hope at VC die.
