L.A. City Council Member Perry Seeks Speedier Vote On AEG's Stadium Proposal

L.A. City Council member Jan Perry is “seeking to speed the City Hall approval process” for AEG’s proposed downtown football stadium, according to Dakota Smith of the L.A. DAILY NEWS. Perry submitted a resolution Tuesday “to reduce the public hearing notice period for the stadium's development agreement to just 10 days.” Under city rules, the City Council “doesn't vote on major projects until 24 days after the development agreement between the city and developer” is made public. The resolution is “expected to be voted on next week by the City Council.” Meanwhile, the city's Planning Department Thursday “released the development agreement to City Hall staff.” The agreement calls for AEG to “pay for millions in improvements to the area around the stadium," including $10M to "add another platform at the Metro Blue Line and Expo Line station at Pico Boulevard," and $2.4M to "fund a study to add a northbound lane to the US-101 Hollywood Freeway near downtown.” In addition, to mitigate traffic, the agreement requires AEG and Dodger Stadium officials to “coordinate measures when there are concurrent events planned for both sites.” The Planning Department report “recommends approval of AEG's project” (LA DAILY NEWS, 9/7).
