"If the A's do come through, that's how we would use it," said City Council President Jane Brunner. "If (the stadium deal) doesn't come through, we would use the site some other way."Its good to see that things are progressing at the Victory Court ballpark site near Jack London Square. It's also good to see that Oakland officials continue to make keeping the A's in Oakland a top priority.

In today's Matier and Ross column, there was a small blurb about Oakland's Redevelopment Agency buying the Fire Department Training site from the city of Oakland for $3 million. While there are still many steps to go, this is a step in the right direction to make a new A's ballpark at Victory Court a reality. One other good thing is that this places some much needed cash into the city's general fund.
