    About 100 people attended a meeting to voice their concerns with the new Levi's Stadium set to open in Santa Clara later this year.

    Police chiefs from Santa Clara and Sunnyvale also attended the Thursday night meeting, held at the Sunnyvale Community Center, to address concerns about traffic, parking and public safety related to the opening of the stadium.

    Sunnyvale-resident Karen Evans said some people will not want to pay $20 for parking at the new stadium, and will look to using her guest parking and hop on a light-rail train to the event.
