AEG debuts NFL-in-DTLA 10,000-page environmental report

AEG

In this rendering released by AEG, the proposed football stadium to house a NFL team in Los Angeles, California is seen. It was announced February 1, 2011 that AEG has sold the naming rights for the proposed stadium to Farmers Insurance Group for $650,000, calling the stadium "Farmers Field."

A 10,000-page report on the environmental impact of building a football stadium in downtown Los Angeles will be presented to City Hall Thursday morning. 

AEG President and CEO Tim Leiweke will present the document -- 18 months and $27 million in the making-- to the city.  Next step, a 45-day period for public comments.

The Farmers Field report, AEG hopes, will lessen concerns about traffic and parking surrounding the proposed $1.4 billion NFL stadium.
