Arena In Inglewood Approved For Clippers
The Inglewood City Council unanimously approved an exclusive negotiating agreement with the Clippers on Thursday.
It would be privately financed and built on 22 acres owned by the city between Prairie and Yukon avenues south of Century Boulevard, the Orange County Register reports.
The agreement calls for a three-year negotiating period with a six-month extension. The team will work on plans for what could be an 18,000- to 20,000-seat arena, and Inglewood will conduct an environment review.
As part of the agreement, the Clippers will have to pay a non-refundable $1.5M deposit for costs associated with the planning.
