City Hall reviews the latest plans for a downtown football stadium

AEG

A rendering of the proposed football stadium to house a NFL team in Los Angeles, Calif., released by AEG.

At City Hall today, officials will discuss the plan to build a football stadium in downtown L.A. The proposal goes before the city's planning commission today.

The planning commission is set to begin reviewing the environmental impact report on the stadium. The 1,700 page report is expected to tackle aspects of building the stadium like traffic projections, estimated to be almost 20,000 more car trips downtown.

And in City Council today, a committee will be reviewing a new estimate for the renovation of the convention center, also part of AEG's plans for a football stadium downtown, that has already jumped over previous estimates by $40 million dollars. AEG says that the additional $40 million will not cost the city any extra funds, however.
