However, groups representing faculty, staff and students at Laney College and other Peralta schools have opposed the stadium plans, saying it could displace long-time residents in the area, make it harder for students to live nearby, and create an increase in traffic and pollution.

The A's expressed their disappointment in a statement released Wednesday morning: "We are shocked by Peralta's decision to not move forward".

"We are disappointed that we will not have that opportunity", the A's said.

Electric black cabs hit London roads today
I'd like to say what the ride is like at speed, but I spend my entire journey stuck in slow-moving traffic. TfL plans to install 75 rapid charging stations in London by the end of the year, and 300 by 2020.

"The district will build on its shared governance model to reimagine the distict's needs and the resources to meet them". "We want the ballpark to be a great place not only for baseball, but also for the community and the environment".

Longtime Oakland A's fan Randy Eoff had just finished a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the Oakland Coliseum Complex when we caught up to him. "We look forward to continued partnerships that enrich the learning experience of our students and the community we have served for more than fifty years". This latest development appears to put the A's back at square one but it also opens the door just a crack to the city's plan to put a new stadium here on the Coliseum's existing site.

The team did not say whether it would consider the two sites previously rejected - a waterfront ballpark, favored by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, or a new stadium adjacent to the A's current home at the Oakland Coliseum. Plus, most agree the Howard Terminal site had the most obstacles of the team's three stadium options. "It is unfortunate the discussion w/ Peralta ended so abruptly, yet we're committed, more than ever, to working with the A's and our community to find the right spot in OAK for a privately-financed ballpark".
