for, you know, the chances that the a's will stay. >> but the conversation continues the motion approved 4 to one and it proposed ballpark to be built at the howard terminal over by the oakland port. the only no vote coming from alameda county board. president keith carson. now, this doesn't mean that it's going to be built for sure. but independent committee will be formed and the a's will pay for them to work and for yet another study on the possible economic and environmental impact the resolution. now paves the way for the county to opt into a non-binding tax district that the city of oakland plans to create for the team's proposed 12 billion dollar waterfront stadium. the money would also pay for surrounding infrastructure like parks and housing. the tax district collects the city's share of property taxes that are generated from that project for 45 years to cover construction costs. they say that no public funds would be used to build or operate. the proposed ballpark, the city and the a's have acknowledged that a commitment from the county would be necessary to push this project forward and
tonight oakland mayor libby schaff ecstatic. she pushed the county to take this up and released a statement calling this an historic action saying that the vote supports a financial framework that will produce incredible community benefits including 18 acres of new public parks along the waterfront desperately needed affordable housing and great union jobs and all while protecting our taxpayers from the mistakes of the past and keeping our port thriving an active, the city and county now stand to earn 10's of millions of dollars in new revenues from an underutilized piece of land revenues that would never exist without the development of the future. waterfront ballpark district. so overall a city staff report shows that the project would generate more than 16 million dollars. annually in property sales and transfer tax revenues. it would then go back to the county. that's far more than the $70,000 a year. they're getting a tax revenues now for the county that they get from that site. grant. >> all right. well, a lot of the a lot to kind of digest i
think what stands out to a lot of people. it is. this is a non-binding. agreement so the county can basically you know, back out at any time and they're still a lot of hoops that it seems like the team needs to jump through from an environmental impact study standpoint. so any intel on where the team stands tonight after this vote. now. >> well, if it's an indicator, there hasn't really been any public comment from the a's at this time after this vote. so i don't know if that is meeting something whether they're still excited to move forward and staying in oakland. but again, as you mentioned, it's non-binding. so that means that the county can make like a chip and dip. it any point. so we'll see if that's enough to have them stick around. >> yeah, i guess if if they hadn't voted to support this. the a's would be be at least now there is hope that they could still stay so we'll stay tuned. all right. thank you, ellen, for that update. and
