Carson City Council approves $1.7B NFL stadium

The Carson City Council has unanimously approved a privately financed stadium for the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders.

The decision comes barely two months after the public announcement of the proposed $1.7-billion project, reported the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. The vote continued the proposal's fast progress in the competition with a rival concept in Inglewood.

It took just eight days to collect more than 15,000 signatures in support of the ballot initiative.

"There are two things we need in California: rain ... and football," said Carson Mayor Albert Robles. "And football is coming to Carson."

Representatives of the projects will provide an update on their progress Wednesday to a committee of NFL owners during a meeting in New York.
