Progress expected on new 49ers stadium


Santa Clara city planners are expected to approve zoning changes needed to build the stadium next to the Great America theme park. Design plans for the $937 million facility are also expected to be approved.

Santa Clara voters OK'd the deal in June. Now, city leaders need to finalize the details so the team can line up financing for construction.

If all goes as planned, the team would open the 2014 season in the South Bay.
