The race to build a stadium in L.A. continues.
Carson2Gether, the group supporting the construction of a stadium in Carson, California, has announced that more than 14,000 signatures from registered voters have been collected. This allows further action to be taken on the stadium project, either by Carson City Council or public ballot.
The signatures will now be verified by election officials at the L.A. County level; the process should take no more than 30 days. Once verified, the signatures will be presented to City Council for further action. If City Council opts for a public election, the election must be set within 90 to 120 days.
The supporters of the competing proposal in Inglewood already have gathered sufficient signatures, and the initiative was adopted by Inglewood City Council. A major local labor group has vowed to attempt to gather enough signatures of its own to force a public referendum, which necessarily would delay the project in Inglewood.
The Rams would be the primary tenants in Inglewood; the Chargers and Raiders would move to Carson. If Inglewood prevails, it’s possible a second team (Chargers or Raiders) would play there.
