Alameda Sun: Council Considered Cup Races’ Impact, November 22, 2013


America's Cup Ad Hoc Committee was scheduled to present its final report to the City Council at its meeting last Tuesday. The committee dates back to June 2011 when the Council began exploring ways the city could participate in the events surrounding the races.

Members of the local maritime and business community formed a 12-member committee that met regularly to find ways to bring revenue from the races to Alameda.

"The committee succeeded in raising local and international awareness of Alameda as a working maritime community," Deborah Potter, the city's community development director, stated in the report.
