Monday Must Read: San Jose Moves Forward on A’s Ballpark; Jerry Brown’s Sacramento Loft Built with Redevelopment Funds

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. In their ongoing efforts to snatch the Oakland A’s, San Jose city officials announced that the city’s redevelopment agency will sell five pieces of land to raise cash for a new ballpark, the Mercury News reported. San Jose plans to use the $25 million in land-sale proceeds to buy two remaining parcels needed for the stadium. The city’s redevelopment agency also needs the cash because it has financial problems. However, city officials also acknowledged that Governor Jerry Brown’s plan to eliminate redevelopment agencies throughout the state would throw a wrench into their ballpark plans. Brown’s proposal would snuff out Oakland’s plans for a new A’s stadium, too.
