Los Angeles at its Best
LA's New Projects
Los Angeles NFL Football Stadium
Los Angeles Stadium will be the first stadium built specifically for the NFL in California and will reflect the California lifestyle, with an outdoor environment, ample parking, plenty of room to tailgate, expanding the NFL game-day experience and great views for all fans.
Sitting at the crossroads of four counties, the Los Angeles Stadium will provide access to over 15.5 million people, playing host to 75,000 fans each Sunday.
Los Angeles Stadium will utilize the unique topography of the site. By building the Los Angeles Stadium into the ground, rather than above the ground, construction costs and materials needed, especially steel, will be lower relative to other stadiums of similar size and scope.
Los Angeles Stadium will set the standard in environmental sustainability with plans to use far less steel and concrete than other new stadiums and will feature solar technologies and reclaimed water for landscaping.
The Los Angeles Stadium will generate over 18,000 jobs and millions of dollars of revenue for the entire Southern California region without public investment.

(Editor) We love this plan. It's time for the NFL to act.

California High-Speed Rail Project
High-speed rail means tens of thousands of good, family-supporting jobs for California — jobs not just to build the trains and the train line, but also jobs to operate and maintain it. And there’s more — hundreds more jobs will be created for suppliers, restaurants and other businesses along the route.
There will be as many as 100,000 construction-related jobs each year that the system is being built. There is a potential for 450,000 permanent new jobs statewide created by the economic growth the high-speed rail will generate over the next 25 years.

Inspired by successful high-speed train systems worldwide, California's electrically-powered high-speed trains will help the state meet ever-growing demands on its transportation infrastructure. Initially running from San Francisco to Los Angeles/Anaheim via the Central Valley, and later to Sacramento and San Diego, high-speed trains will travel between LA and San Francisco in under 2 hours and 40 minutes, at speeds of up to 220 mph, and will interconnect with other transportation alternatives, providing an environmentally friendly option to traveling by plane or car.
800 miles of track… up to 24 stations… the most thorough environmental review process in the nation. Due to the large scope of the project, the planning process proceeded in phases: first, program-level review assessing the need and service area for a statewide system, presenting broad policy choices, and identifying corridors for further study, and second, project-level review in more detail for determining the best alignment and station locations within each of nine system sections. Why? Greater community input, resulting in the best system for all Californians.
Improved movement of people, goods and services.
