ONN – Oakland Should Not Sell Its Economic Planning Soul To The Oakland Athletics

The Oakland Athletics must follow City of Oakland planning, housing, and economic development guidelines in the process of working to build a ballpark at Howard Terminal.

No good economic planning effort (defined here as a combination of housing, urban design, transportation and economic development planning) is done totally at the direction of one business. Every business must respect the local economic planning laws and determine how to best make those directives work for them.

If the Oakland Athletics can’t follow City of Oakland laws, then the team should relocate. The trouble is, I don’t know of any city today who would just plain lay down for the Oakland A’s.

Stay tuned.

Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
