Santa Clara Niners stadium moves closer

If Santa Clara is going to woo the restive 49ers from San Francisco by building a stadium, this here is the game plan, according to the Santa Clara city manager’s office.

On Dec. 8, the city council will meet to certify the environmental impact report, resolve for a 2010 election, and resolve to establish a special tax boundary.

In the first months of 2010, the city council, planning commission and redevelopment agency will work on the general and redevelopment plans, which will go up for vote on March 30.

The election will either happen in April or June, though Santa Clara officials seem to be leaning toward June.

So, by June of next year San Francisco 49ers fans could be getting used to the idea of rooting for the Santa Clara Gold Diggers.
