Letter From Jim Baxter

I voted for the new Levi’s Stadium. One reason was the much-communicated benefit of walkers and cyclists being able to use the San Tomas Aquino stream trail to get to events at the stadium. On Sept. 6th, my family and I walked up the trail to the Mexico vs. Chile soccer game and were stopped at a locked gate at Agnew Road. Two security guards told us that this was due to “security reasons.” We, and other walker,s were directed to Great America Parkway where we sucked up the exhaust of bumper-to-bumper cars heading to the event. I later met bicyclists who’d also been stopped at the closed gates. This is definitely not what I voted for. Open the stream trail for all Levi’s Stadium events!
