Vote on new 49ers stadium could happen next year

The 49ers’ attempts to have a new stadium constructed in Santa Clara received a major boost Wednesday night when a planning commission recommended, 7-0, that the City Council certify the team’s Environmental Impact Report. Should the City Council do that, which could happen as soon as next month, then the final step would be to hold a public vote on the issue, which could come next year, possibly in June.

The 49ers aim to be in the new 68,000-seat stadium for the 2014 season, and the planning commission’s decision left members of the organization very enthused. The stadium project is the primary focus of 49ers president Jed York and vital to the team’s ability to compete on a more-level playing field in terms of revenue streams.
