L.A. OLYMPIC SWIM FACILITY MAY BE DEMOLISHED FOR PARKING LOT
Published October 5, 1994
An earthquake-damaged swimming facility adjacent to the L.A. Memorial Coliseum may be demolished and replaced by a "large parking structure close to both the Coliseum and the Sports Arena." The site of the '32 Olympic swimming events and the "city's largest swim facility for youths was shut down all summer" and it appears likely that a replacement pool and park will be built near the area. The addition of more parking for the Coliseum may ease "negotiations with the Raiders on a long- term playing contract," and "pleasing the Raiders is said to be a major reason for officials' desire to relocate the facility." Details still need to be decided, but a decision could be made soon (Kenneth Reich, LOS ANGELES TIMES, 10/4).
