City Council Preview: More Chamber and Convention Center Discussion; Annual Levi’s Stadium Report

By Robert Haugh

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  If you’re a 49ers fan or a Michigan football fan, I hope at least your food was good.

Here’s a quick summary of the main items for tomorrow’s City Council meeting:


  • There will be a  study session on potential changes to the City’s massage ordinance.


  • Silicon Valley Power electric rates will be discussed. A proposal to raise electric rates for “large customers” is slated. SVP rates are already way lower than PG&E rates.  Let’s hope they stay that way.


  • There will be a lot of items on the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce/Convention-Visitors Bureau (CVB), Convention Center and the Tourism Improvement District (TID) including a response from the Chamber and more information from auditor Tap International. Highlights include findings on the structural mismanagement of the Chamber and Convention Center and means for improving existing and former practices.


  • We will hear an update on the status of the Harvey M. Rose Measure J compliance audit.


  • The Stadium Authority will hear an informational annual report.
