I don't know why my post says I live in Ontario, it must be the default setting (I don't know how to change it). I really do live in Walnut. Both of my daughters graduated from Walnut High School.

This stadium will do NOTHING POSITIVE for Diamond Bar, though it has already enrichened a Diamond Bar councilwoman,(I prefer to leave HER name anonymous).

If you want to build a new stadium, BUILD IT ON THE ONTARIO SPEEDWAY, and keep it out of my friggin back yard

This is the worst idea ever. What idiot decided that a simple football stadium was more important than the families who live here? This stadium does not benefit us in anyway, and we already have a troublesome tower to deal with as well. I do not like how Walnut is turning out, and just thinking about it makes me mad. If you want a stupid tower, go build it in your own town, not mine.

Biggest question is whether the NFL is again seeking to fund this project with public bond issues. State is already bankrupt. The region has much bigger needs than a football team. We must say: No Free Lunch for sports billionaires!

Well, If you read the latest news,

If the stadium isn't approved, He will still build a bigger industrial complex.

Now that means more Truck traffic on the already crowded 60 fwy on a daily basis, versus on weekends for the stadium.

so either way there will be effects on both sides of the freeways

I can't believe how naÔve the people against the City of Industry stadium are. Your biggest complaint against a stadium is too much traffic, yet the alternative is a shopping mall, which will generate even more traffic. I think you must have an ulterior motive for your objection to the stadium. Iím not sure naÔve is the proper description for you.
Itís either a stadium or a mall.
A mall will generate more traffic.
Your complaint is the stadium will generate too much traffic? On average, the mall will generate about 7,500 trips per day more than a stadium. Read the EIR, itís all in there.
If you would like more information on the stadium, or get on the list for tickets, the website is http://www.losangelesfootballstadium.com/
Have a nice day.

I live in Walnut. my kids go to schools in Diamond Bar.
If they are going to build something there, I prefer the Stadium with the Entertainment Center, at least we can enjoy some closer entertainmentand shopping.
The mall is part of the Stadium construction with theatres and stores.
If they don't build the stadium complex they will build more industrial buildings, like there are there now.
That will cause more big rigs delivering and picking up loads,
That will cause the increase in traffic, EVERYDAY.
Grand is a mess now.

Big John, have you actually lived near a stadium? I have. When the Jets or Giants play in NJ, you literally can not move. It is backed up for blocks as fans either go to or leave the game. I really don't know if anyone here appreciates what will happen. There LITERALLY won't be enough space in the streets to get your car out of your house!

The problem is big money and the corruption it brings. If you don't know, City of Industry is basically a for profit business. They are as bad as Enron and the likes. They have 700 residents, most of which have ties to the city council. They build all the malls and stores next to our citys from hacienda heights to diamond bar, sucking away our sales tax dollars. If you drive along Colima, most of the big box stores are in Industry, though you may never know it. They suck and suck the life blood of our cities and residents. They don't care about us. They will do anything to make more money, including either building a mall or a damn stadium next to our homes. It's disgusting. We residents will get nothing but traffic and pollution.

And lest you think that traffic will only be bad on weekends, WRONG! Nobody builds a stadium as a sports stadium only. Every night will host entertainment like concerts and other events. And they will still build massive retail around the stadium. They aren't so stupid as to NOT milk every cent out of this deal, and us.

Someone needs to investigate the predatory behavior of Industry and bring it out to light.

NO! it would be great to you, but what about the poor people in Diamond Bar and Walnut, what about them? Do you think they want so much traffic that it will be impossible to travel?

Yeah that would be cool, but the surrounding areas were built for people who wanted to live in a peaceful, quiet suburb and not have to deal with a ton of traffic.

maybe you should move to Diamond Bar and deal with all the crappy traffic than come back and tell us about this "growing pains."
until you have to sit in traffic on Grand or Diamond Blve for HOURS just to move 2 miles you have no room to talk about traffic.

The NFL stadium mega-project would destroy our quiet residential neighborhoods.
The Environmental Impact Report states: "Impacts would extend far beyond the local vicinity of the project and are significant adverse impacts." (p.133)

Property values would go down and car insurance would go up.

Traffic: Over 53,000 car and truck trips weekdays
Over 62,000 car and truck trips weekends
Grand Avenue would be widened to 6 lanes
Road widenings would be done along Valley Blvd. Nogales St,
Amar, Fairway, Lemon, Diamond Bar Blvd., Colima/Golden Springs
Grand Ave, the 60 freeway and the 57 freeway will be gridlocked
There is inadequate parking. Only 25,000 parking spaces are planned for a 75,000 seat stadium.
This doesn't even consider employee parking needs or the other uses on the site..
Monday Night Football games would mean our going home commute would be unbearable.

Safety: The intersection of 57 and 60 freeway are defined already as a possible terrorist target.
A stadium filled with 75,000 people makes it a more "desirable" target.
Drinking is a customary part of all these events
There will be more DUIs.
Neighboring towns will require more police protection because of rowdy crowds leaving the stadium.
There will be more traffic accidents both because of drinking and
because there are so many drivers frustrated by gridlock.
Car insurance companies will put us in a higher rate zone because of project impacts.
We might get a team infamous for the violence of its fans

Noise: "No mitigation measures would be available to reduce noise from nighttime cleanup activities,
fireworks, and noise generated from helicopters."(p.133)
"Noise impacts generated during a stadium event are considered significant and unavoidable (p.17)
There would be helicopter fly-overs and blimps that stayed in the area throughout the games.
Events would generate noise heard throughout our area
Rock concerts could last all day and night
Parking lot cleanup would continue all night
There would be fireworks, crowd cheering, loudspeakers, music, skateboards,
tailgating parties, car alarms, door slammings, vehicle engines

Economic: The excessive increase in incoming traffic will necessitate reconstruction of incoming routes. It is our taxes
that will pay to repair the 60 freeway, the 57 freeway, Valley Blvd., Grand Ave.
There is not enough regular or reclaimed water for our current uses, much less for this project. Local water
departments will have to buy more water, causing our rates to rise.
Increased crime in surrounding communities will necessitate paying more for police.

Health: The increased emissions from increased traffic will cause health problems, especially for children.

I live in Diamond Bar, and now is not the time to move because of the bad economy... I would rather they build it in Upland or Rancho Cucamonga because they can take the I-10 and bypass Diamond Bar completely.
