Youth Soccer Park PDF Print E-mail

Located next to the stadium, the Santa Clara Youth Soccer Park (YSP) has 136 parking

stalls which are apparently coveted for stadium parking.

Note: All figures are from the TMOP (Transportation Management & Operations Plan)

for the stadium.

Note that on this figure, the YSP is denoted as Stadium Parking Lot #4. (TMOP 5.5-1)

 

On this Figure (5.5-2 TMOP) the blue lines are for 'club and suite' parking vehicle patron

access to the Soccer Park parking lot.

 

Here, it becomes clear that the YSP is the planned location for limousine dropoff of club and

suite patrons (TMOP 5.3-4), and that the street leading to the YSP will be the staging area

for limousines:

The City Council recently voted to spend $2 million of our tax dollars to study the relocation

of the Youth Soccer Park.

Timeline: The Santa Clara Stadium Gameplan Exposed

How did we get to here:

  • 49ers sue to get Redevelopment Money that should go to our schols
  • Stadium Authority responsible for $950 Million in stadium construction loans
  • 49ers aren't putting in any of their own money up front for stadium construction (according to Goldman Sachs' stadium financing chart)

From here:

  • "92% of the stadium will be paid for by the 49ers/NFL" (Mayor Mahan on ABC April 6, 2010)
  • "Over 92% of this project is paid for by the NFL, the 49ers, and other stadium revenues." (Mahan/Matthews op/ed piece in the SC Weekly, May 5, 2010)
  • "There is nothing in the Term Sheet that requires the Stadium Authority to provide $330 million (or any other amount) for stadium construction..." (Attorney for 49er Stadium Campaign Yes on Measure J April 6, 2010)
