Cisco Field Update
The stadium deal is now entering that thrilling zone of city paperwork. Late last week, the A's filed an "application to negotiate a development agreement," which apparently is a one-page precursor to getting the whole process started. Note that the process itself, which involves a planning review that could take a year, hasn't officially started.
The pace is about what I expected, having covered real estate before. It's a story we'll keep watching, but I'm not exactly setting up camp at Fremont City Hall for it.
