The Oakland A’s may think they have hit a home run by gaining the Port of Oakland’s Board of Port Commissioners’ unanimous approval to an exclusive negotiating term sheet, but the industry is far from throwing the game.  We are still swinging for the fences.

We do not believe 3,000-4,000 homes, small watercraft, personal vehicles, pedestrians, and added congestion are congruent with maritime operations.  We are not standing idly by and accepting the A’s and the city’s fact-less assurances that everything will all work out in the end.  Work our for whom, exactly?

As a reminder the term sheet means the A’s have four years to complete an environmental impact report (EIR), negotiate lease terms with the port and secure additional regulatory approvals.  But, keep in the mind, the A’s have plans to break ground next year.
