L.A. CITY COUNCIL APPROVES MONEY FOR A STADIUM CONSULTANT
Published December 8, 1995
The L.A. City Council on Tuesday approved spending a maximum of $50,000 on a consultant to scout possible stadium sites for a new football team, according to the L.A. TIMES. City Councilman Mike Hernandez said the city is interested in about five sites, and the consultants will analyze up to 12 sites in their report (L.A. TIMES, 12/7). Columnist Kevin Starr notes the challenge for Football LA, the group seeking a team for the area, is more than just finding a location and building a stadium, it is to "help reform -- and redeem -- professional football" (L.A. TIMES, 12/8). WHO WILL PLAY THERE? Sources at L.A. City Hall say the city has had discussions with the Eagles, according to Mike Bruton of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. But the source says "there is little chance" the team would move because L.A. doesn't have the money to offer deals like the offers in Baltimore and Nashville (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 12/8).
