Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: World's Fair proposed for Moffett Field (CA)

From Shanghai this Sunday, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to pitch Silicon Valley as the site of the 2020 World Expo. Local officials are buzzing about the possibility of using Moffett Field to host the event, which may bring tens of millions of people to the area for six months.

The Bay Area Council, which lobbied Schwarzenegger to back the Silicon Valley location, has been talking about Moffett Field as a potential site for the world's fair, said Bill Berry, president of University Associates, which is leading the effort to build a major UC campus at Moffett Field.

The proposition, as Bay Area Council president Jim Wunderman describes it, is music to the ears of government officials. As many as 70 million visitors would boost business in the area for six months, plus hundreds of acres of new infrastructure would be built that could be re-used by businesses and universities for years to come, at no cost to taxpayers.
