  • L.A. City Coucil Approves Renovation Plan for NFL Team - 5/19/06

    Los Angeles is finally back on track to getting itself an NFL team...again.

    LOS ANGELES, May 19, 2006 - As part of the city's bid to lure a National Football League team back to Los Angeles, the City Council today unanimously approved a proposed $800 million renovation of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

    The plan, which calls for building a new 67,000-seat facility within the walls of the historic Coliseum, home of the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics, would only go into effect if the NFL approves a team for Los Angeles. Wanting to have the project approved by Monday, when city officials are to make their pitch for a team to NFL owners meeting in Denver, the council barely discussed the matter before also approving architectural and signage designs and an alcohol-sales policy for the Coliseum.

    As part of the deal to be presented to NFL owners, the council also agreed to spend at least $25 million to improve the neighborhood surrounding the Coliseum.
    This is great news for the area. I hope USC gets in on the action by helping assist with the renovation project.

    I hope they are good to the Coliseum. I would hate to see them defile a landmark that has such rich history. I think this renovation project will help Los Angeles's chances of getting another Summer Olympics.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    I wouldn't hold my breath on this happening just yet. Hasn't the NFL said they won't approve a new team unless it gets an ENTIRELY new stadium???
