SoCal city approves NFL stadium plan settlement
The Associated Press
The city of Diamond Bar has unanimously approved a legal settlement that grants it more than $21 million in exchange for dropping objections to a professional football stadium in a neighboring Southern California city.
City Council members approved the agreement Tuesday night with the city of Industry, which approved plans for the $800 million venue in February.
The settlement includes $20 million to deal with increased traffic from the stadium and $1 million for a middle school athletic field.
Diamond Bar also would receive at least $700,000 a year from Industry for community facilities as long as the stadium remains in operation. Another nearby city, Walnut, filed a lawsuit last month to stop the proposed stadium's construction.
