MOST COMMENTED

The San Jose City Council approved the rezoning of a 94-acre site near San Jose airport in order for MLS's Earthquakes to build an 18,000-seat stadium. Mayor Chuck Reed said the stadium was part of the city's goal to become a regional center for professional sports.

”We’ve decided to move ahead with the Earthquake’s stadium in San Jose, so getting its rezoning done is an important step and we’re looking forward to them breaking ground as soon as they’re ready,” said Reed.

Not everyone is happy the Quakes are building a stadium. A neighborhood group has complained about the noise from the games and other events at the stadium. "Our neighborhood is going to have BART, high-speed rail, Interstate 880, we’ve got the San Jose International Airport, and now the soccer stadium idea has popped up in the last year,” said John Urban, president of the Newhall Neighborhood Association.
