Santa Clara sued over proposed 49ers stadium
The owners of a theme park adjacent to a proposed stadium for
the 49ers in Santa Clara are suing the city, saying an agreement
with the team is illegal.
The lawsuit filed Monday by Cedar Fair Entertainment, which owns
the Great America Theme Park, says the city should have approved an
environmental impact report for the stadium before reaching an
agreement with the team in June.
The nonbinding terms include $114 million in public funding.
City Manager Jennifer Sparacino says the city is hopeful it can
resolve its differences with Cedar Fair.
Meanwhile, the City Council on Tuesday approved the
environmental report and directed staff to draft a ballot measure
to gain voter support for the project.
