Agency clears way for Oakland Athletics $12B ballpark plan
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A California agency has cleared the way for the Oakland Athletics to move forward with a $12 billion waterfront ballpark project.
The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission voted Thursday to reclassify a terminal at the Port of Oakland as a mixed-use area where a new ballpark could be built.
The vote is the first in a series of hurdles before the team could get permission to break ground for the project.
The Athletics have also been working on plans to relocate to Nevada and find a spot for a new stadium in Las Vegas.
