SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom this week signed a resolution endorsing the largest development project in the city's modern history.

The 770-acre, $2 billion project is a military base closure, housing development, green-tech incubator, public park creator, and economic revitalization plan for a distressed neighborhood, all rolled into one. And if that's not enough, it also includes a bid to keep the San Francisco 49ers in the city by the bay by contributing $100 million toward the construction of a new football stadium that could compete with the facility proposed by rival suitor Santa Clara, a few dozen miles to the south.
