The Pasadena City Council may sign off on a plan today to use federal and local funds to make over the Rose Bowl stadium. The three year project would add luxury suites, upgrade the stadium’s HD screen, and restore the field’s original oval shape among other updates. Supporters of the plan believe Pasadena needs to upgrade the aging facility while retaining its historic designation. Some critics believe the city’s $15 million share of costs will hurt other needed programs. Which team are you rooting for?
