Report: NFL Stadium Project up for Vote Lacks Detailed Plans

Apr 21, 2015 9:13 AM

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A report on a proposed $1.7 billion NFL stadium near Los Angeles says the proposal "lacks any detailed site plans," making predictions on its functioning and finances difficult.

The findings were released in advance of a Tuesday night meeting on the stadium project in Carson, during which the City Council could endorse the plan and schedule an election for voters to consider it.

The documents released by the city include a financial analysis by consultant AECOM, which found that the stadium would need two teams to be a steady money-maker for the city.

The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders are planning the shared stadium on the site of a former landfill in Carson, on the edge of Los Angeles, if both teams fail to get new stadiums in their current hometowns.
