Dodgers' McCourt unveils stadium makeover plan
Among the renovations, planned by 2012, would be a dedicated bus lane near the stadium and two parking garages plus additional underground parking.
Dodgers owner Frank McCourt unveiled plans today for a historic makeover of the club's 275-acre Dodger Stadium site in Chavez Ravine, describing new features designed to transform the ballpark into a year-round destination for dining, shopping and recreation that will be fan- and environment-friendly.
At the same time, McCourt challenged civic leaders to follow his $500-million investment by extending bus and subway lines to the ballpark.

From what I saw, it will be like a outdoor mall right at the top of the hill. I'm sure it'll bring the out the people opposed....It is the second oldest park being played in right now!

3rd oldest....."The stadium, in use since 1962, will be the third oldest in Major League Baseball after the New York Yankees move to their new home next year. Only Boston's Fenway Park and Chicago's Wrigley Field will be older." -ESPN

So should I get prepared to buy my beers for $15 bucks apiece?
Let's hope it looks nice, is user friendly, and doesn't break our banks.

I am glad they brought up public transportation. They could use something going to Dodger stadium. Did I read parking structures?
