Community, Business Leaders to Announce Support for Oakland Athletics' Plan to Build New Downtown Stadium

A coalition of community leaders, business and labor leaders and other Oakland city leaders are scheduled Monday to announce their support for the Oakland Athletics' plans to build a new downtown stadium.

The team last week announced plans to construct a new privately-financed stadium on a plot of land near Laney College in downtown Oakland.

The next step for the A's is evaluating the Peralta site, which consists of about 13 acres near Interstate 880, not far from Lake Merritt.

The stadium would be privately financed and close to BART, the A's said.

The A's have played at the Coliseum since 1968.
