Re: “A's Ballpark Proposal at Laney College Abruptly Scrapped

Not every city has a location that is right for a downtown ballpark. This was wrong for Laney, the immediate and surrounding communities, and for the environment. Would have been nice for the team owners and investors at the expense of the rest. Grateful to the trustees who were able to see that the future reality lurking behind the magic curtain of money would have been a disservice to the college and its neighborhood.

Re: “New Ballpark Could Devastate Lake Merritt's Birds

Sacrificing the Lake, it's wildlife and the neighborhoods around it for the gain of a privately held business is horribly wrong. The whole idea is built on the assumption that folks will be coming to games from downtown when the majority of fans come from elsewhere in the Bay Area. This location is wrong for the environment, the neighborhood, the college, and Oakland.

Re: “The Laney College Opposition

Thinking that the ballpark won't kill Laney off and that all the fans will suddenly take public transport to get there and we Oaklanders won't be paying for any of the improvements demanded of the infrastructure is blindness caused by dollar signs. Build out the Coliseum site with a great, human scale, attractive ballpark, help create a support community around that. Ballparks do not need to be superimposed on an existing neighborhood.
