Levi’s Stadium is scheduled to open in August, 2014.
The Santa Clara Police Department (SCPD), the 49ers Management Company and Valley Transportation Authority hosted five (5) community meetings for North side residents and business owners to share the following:
• 2014 event schedule – NFL and non-NFL events
• Stadium comparison – Candlestick vs. Levi’s Stadium
• Game day transit characteristics
• Transit options for event attendees
• Parking plan for participants
• NFL best practices being adopted
• Law enforcement coalition
• Neighborhood Protection Patrol
• Anticipated impact on the neighborhood surrounding the stadium – including mitigation plan
• Contact information to offer recommendations or share concerns
Citizen participation was strongly encouraged at the public meetings. However, SCPD recognized that not everyone is able to attend. With that in mind, the May 7, 2014, Stadium Community meeting was videotaped. It is available on the Santa Clara Police Department’s YouTube site. It was also aired on Channel 15 in May. Subsequent dates and times to be determined.
