An environmental impact report issued Wednesday calls an undeveloped 592-acre parcel near the junction of the 57 and 60 freeways in Industry the best place in Southern California for a professional football stadium.
The 800-page report was prepared for Industry by a Costa Mesa research firm. It reviewed the plans of billionaire developer Ed Roski to build an $800 million National Football League stadium.
Roski is head of Industry-based Majestic Realty Co., part-owner of the NBA's Lakers and NHL's Kings, and co-owner of Staples Center. He had originally planned to construct a retail and entertainment complex on the site. He switched gears earlier this year in hopes he could bring the NFL back to Los Angeles in time for the 2009 season.
