Help Us Make This Happen

The Arena would be a GAME CHANGER for Inglewood.

It would be an outrage for Inglewood to lose this life-changing project because of a double-standard.

PROBLEM:

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 TRUTH ABOUT CLIPPERS ARENA

The new arena will overwhelm the community with three large-scale venues all within a mile of each other.

  • The city of Inglewood has a long history of playing host to and welcoming large venues. When the Hollywood Park racetrack was active and the Lakers still played at The Forum, crowds of more than 40,000 people per day flocked to the city.

The new arena will harm the local community and the region.

  • The $100 Million Community Benefits package is the largest commitment ever made in connection with a major California sports venue.  
  • When complete, the complex will generate an estimated annual $268 million in new economic activity for Inglewood.

Residents are being removed from their homes.

  • $80 million of the arena Community Benefits package is dedicated helping Inglewood residents stay in Inglewood.

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 location is near multiple public transportation options including the new Crenshaw/LAX light rail line that will begin running prior to the arena opening. 
  • An estimated 75% of the events planned for the new arena are not large-scale events, with 100 of these expected to draw attendance of 2,000 or less.

The arena will weaken California’s fight against climate change, creating 550,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases with no local reduction measures

  • Through a combination of carbon offset credits and sustainable design features, the arena will achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions and is a LEED Gold project that will set new standards for environmental efficiency.

The arena is opposed by thousands of neighbors – thousands of Inglewood residents, dozens of businesses, and local community groups oppose the plan.

  • Inglewood’s religious leaders and their congregations, local business, government and youth groups, all want and need the kind of economic revitalization the Clippers arena will bring to the community.
