By Will Connell and Emma Colburn---The San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that Peralta Community College District Chancellor Jowel Laguerre has come around to the idea of building the new A’s ballpark at district office property near Laney College. This makes it even more likely that the Peralta site will be picked for the new stadium.
The Oakland Conduit wanted to get perspectives from business owners near Laney College and Howard Terminal, the other site in contention for the ballpark, about what a new stadium would do to their neighborhoods and businesses.
See what they had to say.
The Oakland A's recently created a website to get people's opinions on where a new ballpark should go. Check it out: http://oaklandballpark.com/
