L.A. Officials Teaming With AEG Tout Confidence In Bringing NFL Back To City

UNDER REVIEW: In California, Brenda Gazzar notes Rose Bowl neighbors and city parks commissioners on Tuesday “expressed concerns about plans to use Pasadena's historic stadium as a temporary home for the NFL.” A special Parks & Recreation Dept. meeting was “the third public session examining a draft Environmental Impact Report for NFL usage of the stadium.” It is “part of a $400,000 study commissioned by the city this year.” The draft review found that allowing the NFL to use the Rose Bowl "for up to five years would cause air pollution, noise pollution, more traffic and result in less recreational use of the Arroyo [Seco Park] by its neighbors -- especially on game days.” The City Council next month will “meet to vote on the EIR and a proposal increasing the annual number of large events at the stadium from 12 to 25” (PASADENA STAR-NEWS, 10/4).
