SBD/1/Facilities Venues


     City officials in Inglewood, CA are gearing up for a push to
bring in a "massive sports complex that could include a new Forum
and a stadium for pro and college football, aqccording to a
report in the SOUTH BAY DAILY BREEZE of Torrance, CA.  The
facility would be built at the Hollywood Park Race Track property
and could spill onto the Forum's adjacent property.  The complex,
which could cost as much as $300M, would be a joint venture
between the city, Hollywood Park and a group headed by Lakers
owner Dr. Jerry Buss -- if an indoor arena were included in the
development.  According to Inglewood City Manager Paul Eckles, at
least one pro and college team probably would have to sign long-
term contracts before a football stadium would be constructed.
Inglewood Mayor Edward Vincent: "We're talking about the Raiders
and UCLA. ... It looks real good."  Buss said he is not looking
to raze the Forum and build another home for the Lakers, but he
would "listen to offers."  UCLA has two years left on its
contract with Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.  Officials at Southern
Cal, which play at the Coliseum, said they are not interested in
moving (AP/WASHINGTON TIMES, 11/1).
