Oakland City Council votes to certify EIR for A's Howard Terminal ballpark project

Feb 17, 2022

After an eight-hour meeting, the Oakland City Council voted 7-1 to certify the environmental impact report for the A's proposed stadium project at Howard Terminal.

Unlike some council meetings, the entirety of Thursday's session dealt with the EIR. The council took public comments two times, with some commenters making appearances during both forums to express their hope that the council wouldn't take a vote on the EIR.
