City and county officials in San Diego, California, have expedited an environmental study of the proposed site for a new Chargers stadium, reports KPBS. Officials met with NFL executives in preparation for a presentation to the franchise owners, discussing a range of topics related to the proposed area.
“We emphasized that San Diego is completing a full-blown environmental impact report, thoroughly drafted to the highest standards and prepared by dozens of top-notch environmental planners, following a process that is supported by the foremost experts in California environmental law,” said mayor Kevin Faulconer. “The environmental report is on schedule.”
The Chargers have acquired land in Carson, Los Angeles County, on which they could build a facility — potentially in collaboration with the Oakland Raiders.
The meeting also discussed the presentation San Diego officials will make to NFL team owners in August, and initial design concepts for the stadium.
