Stop the Clippers Arena

Leading environmental groups, state legislators and local residents all agree

The Los Angeles Clippers arena plan will damage the environment and harm the Inglewood community.

Crippling
Traffic Congestion

From 4 million
more cars

Increased Air
Pollution

From 3,400 tons
of pollutants

More Greenhouse
Gas Emissions

From 550,000 metric
tons of GHGs

You can make a difference by asking Governor Newsom to reject special treatment for this irresponsible plan.

The Clippers are attempting to rush through a reckless, irresponsible proposal that would threaten the Inglewood community and region.

The Clippers made clear, specific promises to protect Inglewood residents and the environment as part of a special law created just for them, AB 987. These promises to the community would allow their arena project to receive fast-tracked environmental review only if it meets the additional environmental requirements mandated by the special law. But the Clippers’ plan comes nowhere close to fulfilling their promises or meeting the standards of the law.

THE CLIPPERS ARENA WOULD BE AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER

Relentless Gridlock

Weakening California’s Fight Against Climate Change

Overwhelming the Community

Opposed By Thousands of Neighbors

Elevated Air Pollution

THE CLIPPERS ARENA WOULD THREATEN INGLEWOOD

Nights a Year of Events

Million Additional Cars in Inglewood

Tons of New Air Pollution

Local Greenhouse Gas Reductions

WOULD BE BUILT RIGHT NEXT TO A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD.

The Facts Speak For Themselves:

Inglewood Can’t Handle Another Arena

OVERWHELMING DEVELOPMENT

A new Clippers arena would be the third large-scale venue in Inglewood – for a total of three venues within a mile that have a combined capacity of more than 100,000 attendees — plus a massive, still-to-be-built, mixed-use development.

The Forum (open since 1967)
17,500 seats

Football stadium (opening in 2020)
70,000 seats

Hollywood Park project (approved)
6,000-seat performance venue
1.5 million sf of retail & office space
2,500 homes
300-room hotel

Clippers arena (proposed)
An additional 18,500 seats

MILLIONS
MORE CARS

These current and future developments are projected to bring 23 million more cars to Inglewood every year.

The Forum
2 million vehicle trips

Football stadium
1.2 million vehicle trips1

Hollywood Park project
16 million vehicle trips1

Clippers arena (proposed)
An additional 3.8 million vehicle trips2

In addition, Inglewood already has a parking shortage, which will only get worse with the addition of a new arena.

CRIPPLING TRAFFIC CONGESTION

Freeway access to Inglewood is drastically constrained1

Inglewood’s major venues are accessible from just 3 primary roads – Century Blvd., Manchester Ave., Prairie Ave.

There are no nearby rail stations, and the Crenshaw light-rail station under construction is more than 1 mile away

The current expansion of LAX (4 miles away) is expected to push even more traffic toward Inglewood

Access to Inglewood’s major venues is severely limited, leading to crippling traffic congestion

HEALTH HAZARDS

This massive traffic inflow will result in dangerous levels of pollution, right next to the homes of Inglewood residents. Experts estimate3:

550,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases2

3,400 tons of air pollutants4

1,600 tons of toxic air contaminants4

Experts have conclusively linked air pollution to higher levels of asthma and other health ailments. Learn more

HARMFUL FOR INGLEWOOD

The Clippers arena will negatively impact a residential neighborhood full of homes and apartments, and the entire Inglewood community.

Inglewood population: 109,419, including 26,807 children, 12,583 seniors and 21,993 living in poverty5

Environmental Groups & Other Leaders Agree

No Special Treatment For The Clippers Arena

Letters Submitted In Response to the Clippers’ Application for AB 987 Certification

Natural Resources Defense Council

The arena “will harm the local community and the region…”

Climate Resolve

The arena “would create a terrible precedent….”

Public Counsel

The arena “will jeopardize the health and well-being of residents.”

CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS

Four key California legislators strongly oppose the Clippers’ application, saying it “will shortchange the very communities the project purports to benefit.”
