Santa Clara city leaders are expected to approve the next step in a proposal that would build a new stadium for the 49ers football team.    

During its meeting Tuesday, the City Council is scheduled to decide on a resolution directing staff to draft a ballot measure for the proposed 68,500-seat stadium that would go before voters either in June or April.    

The council also is expected to sign off on the environmental impact report, which must be approved before the measure can be placed on the ballot.    

If Santa Clara residents do vote in favor of the project, other issues including parking and potential traffic problems would still have to be resolved before the stadium could be built. 

There is still a possibility that the Raiders could join the team and play its home game in the South Bay.

The 49ers want the stadium completed before the start of the 2014 season.
