A’s Host Town Hall on Howard Terminal Stadium
The Oakland A’s mascot Stomper hung out with Alameda’s new City Manager, Eric J. Leavitt, May 1, when the Major League Baseball team hosted a town hall meeting about its proposed new stadium at Oakland’s Howard Terminal. The meeting was held at Michaan’s Auction Theater at Alameda Point. The new stadium location, just across the estuary from Alameda Point, poses some interesting challenges and opportunities for synergy with the Island City. Ideas floating around the room during the reception included additional West End crossings between Oakland and Alameda taking the form of water taxis or a gondola.
