Cisco FieldIn Lew Wolff's first public meeting before the Fremont City Council regarding a new ballpark-only facility for the Athletics, little in the way of new details were given. However, it was a forum for those that were for or against the development, which includes a vast "ballpark villiage" component.

What details did surface had to do with the scale involving the development project. As reported by the Mercury News:

Wolff mostly delivered a broad overview of his development plan at a standing-room-only meeting Tuesday night, but he did reveal two key numbers: The retail-residential development surrounding his new baseball stadium would include 2,900 new homes and up to a half-million square feet of ``specialty'' retailers, akin to San Jose's Santana Row. He also urged the city to "move this along sooner rather than later, if everyone likes it.''

Wolff's comments regarding the quick pace was met with criticism from several speakers. As further reported:

"The potential impacts of a project of this magnitude are enormous, and common sense would tell you, given these potential impacts, if anything, you would slow the process down to make sure that we understand these impacts,'' said Vinton Bacon, a local Sierra Club representative.
