SF Planning Commissioner criticizes Santa Clara

A San Francisco official who wants the 49ers to remain in San Francisco took a swipe Thursday at Santa Clara, which is attempting to poach the franchise by helping it build a stadium.

During a San Francisco Planning Commission meeting on Thursday, Planning Commissioner Michael Antonini criticized the legally-mandated environmental review of a proposed Santa Clara 49ers stadium.

Antonini described public notices about the environmental review, which he said were published by “a city to our south,” as “terrible.”

Antonini also said the city’s recently-published final environmental impact report failed to take into consideration any of the comments that he submitted after a draft was published.

“It’s not nearly as thorough as the standards that we set (in San Francisco),” Antonini said.  “I guess everybody doesn’t do as thorough of a job as we do on these EIRs.”

Santa Clara officials were not present when Antonini made the remarks.
