New Address For Olympic Village In LA
Organizers announced the Olympic Village would instead be at UCLA, which, along with USC, was used to house athletes during the 1984 Summer Olympics. The project along the LA River would have cost at least $2B, and questions had been raised about whether the area could have been ready in time for the Olympics. Union Pacific also still owns the property, according to the Eastsider.
LA is competing against Budapest, Paris and Rome to host the games. The decision will not be announced until next year. [ELA]
