Cisco Field Update

Craig Matsumoto

6:00 PM -- Having brought up the story of Cisco Field -- the proposed baseball stadium in Fremont, Calif., for the Oakland Athletics -- I feel obligated to issue updates. This is the part I've been dreading.

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.
