The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is holding up approval of the Clippers Arena. Inglewood is being held to a much higher standard than other – wealthier – communities in California, where sports and entertainment arenas have been fast-tracked for approval.
When other cities like San Francisco and San Diego wanted to build new arenas, the projects were approved by CARB in weeks or days. In Inglewood, it’s been nearly 10 months.
The Inglewood Arena Project is Still NOT APPROVED After
The new arena will overwhelm the community with three large-scale venues all within a mile of each other.
The new arena will harm the local community and the region.
Residents are being removed from their homes.
Relentless gridlock will be the result of the new arena, bringing four million new cars into a transit-starved community with no trains and a parking shortage.
The arena will weaken California’s fight against climate change, creating 550,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases with no local reduction measures
The arena is opposed by thousands of neighbors – thousands of Inglewood residents, dozens of businesses, and local community groups oppose the plan.
