ONN – The Oakland Coliseum Complex is largely treated as a giant, glorified, high school gymnasium. Most of the time the giant hulking venues sit empty. The fact is, there are all kinds of creative ways to use the stadium and the arena.
The Oakland Coliseum Stadium and Oracle Arena are the largest unused assets in Oakland. Why can’t they play host to luncheons, parties, dinners, and other types of events? Why can’t people live there now?
Demolishing those buildings is a sign that we have zero interest or desire in seeking the most efficient use of public facilities. It’s a sign that government is nothing less than lazy and uncaring.
Improve the Oakland Coliseum. Now!
