Farmers Field passes Planning Commission, headed to the City Council
The Farmers Field stadium and convention center renovation project achieved another milestone yesterday when the Los Angeles Planning Commission unanimously approved the plan.
The 9-0 vote is the second unanimous vote in favor of the project following the Los Angeles City Council's 15-0 vote to approve the Memorandum of Understanding last year.
And AEG said the vote by the Planning Commission was another major win for Farmers Field, and for Los Angeles:
Today's unanimous votes taken by the Planning Commission support a transformative project that will create thousands of good, local jobs, generate millions of dollars of economic impact and investment for our City and will bring conventions and the NFL to Los Angeles.
The benefits of a world-class, modernized and enlarged Los Angeles Convention Center created by this project will provide benefits to every sector of our City.
Today's outcome was the result of hundreds of community meetings and dedication provide by dedicated supporters and community partners that not only attended today's meeting but have supported this incredible project over the past year and a half.
The Farmers Field project now moves to the Los Angeles City Council for a final vote on the Environmental Impact Report. Approval at their September 28th meeting will clear the way to break ground in 2013.
