Downtown LA Football Stadium Town Hall Meeting in Mar Vista

The developer, which owns LA Live, Staples Center and the Home Depot Center in Carson, will answer questions from Westside community leaders from 7-9 pm, Monday June 27, at the Mar Vista Recreation Center, 11430 Woodbine Street.

LA Councilman Bill Rosendahl will moderate the meeting where AEG CEO Tim Leiweke will make a brief presentation and field questions from people selected by each of the neighborhood councils in Rosendahl's district

"This proposal is a big deal, and residents and taxpayers deserve the opportunity to ask questions and scrutinize the proposal," Rosendahl said in a press release. Rosendahl vice chair of a special council committee examining the proposal, said he welcomes the idea of an NFL team in Los Angeles, but has a lot of unanswered questions about the financing and risk to the taxpayers.

Leiweke lives in Rosendahl's Westside district 11.

"If people have questions, bring them on," Leiweke said in the release. "This is a smart, solid proposal that, at no cost to the taxpayers, will provide great economic benefits to our City. I'm confident that direct questions and honest answers will build on the already strong support for the proposal."

Earlier this year, AEG proposed to build a new football stadium and event center downtown while modernizing and expanding a portion of the under-utilized Los Angeles Convention Center. See the LATimes.com for more - http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-nfl-stadium-20110621,0,6294...
