Three weeks after we broke the news about a potential deal between San Francisco Rec & Parks and a new pro soccer team, the San Francisco Deltas, to host games in Kezar Stadium, the city is hosting two meetings to hear the public's opinion about the proposal.

So far, major community concerns about the plan center around traffic management and the plan to serve alcohol at the stadium (beer for spectators, and hard alcohol drinks for VIP ticketholders).

The first meeting will be with Rec & Parks' Open Space Advisory Committee (PROSAC) this Tuesday, March 1st at 6:30pm, room 278, City Hall. The second will be with Rec & Parks' Operations Committee, and is scheduled for this Thursday, March 3rd at 2pm, room 416, City Hall.

The Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council, which publicized the meetings this week in its newsletter, has announced its formal opposition to the deal for four reasons: alcohol, the traffic impact, the occupation of the stadium when it might otherwise be used for the community, and the current lack of involvement from SFPD and SFFD in the planning process.

If you want to make yourself heard, you can attend either of these meetings or send a message to Supervisor London Breed's office, at breedstaff [at] sfgov [dot] org. We'll keep you posted with new developments on the deal.
