Statement from Mayor Libby Schaaf on Oakland A’s Progress to Build Privately Financed Ball Park in Oakland

Oakland, CA – Today, following the annual Oakland A’s flag raising event with Oakland Athletics President Dave Kaval on the roof of City Hall, Mayor Libby Schaaf issued the following statement:

“I’m excited to support exclusive negotiating agreements (ENA) with our Oakland A’s at both the Coliseum and Howard Terminal sites. This doubles our chances of getting to a great ballpark project on time.

“I’ll be formally requesting the City Council authorize negotiations with the A’s for an ENA at the Coliseum while I’ll also urging the Commissioners of the Port of Oakland to approve an ENA for Howard Terminal at their April 26th meeting.

“Supporting the A’s at both locations allows the team to explore both options and ensures that no matter where the A’s play ball – it’ll be in Oakland.

“Through these negotiations I’ll remain focused on keeping the A’s rooted in Oakland in a way that’s responsible to our taxpayers and enhances neighborhood vitality.”
