The public is invited to attend scoping meetings either June 12 or June 14, 2014 to provide comments regarding a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) that is being prepared for the proposed Rose Bowl Music Festival. The public is welcome to attend and present information that they believe should be addressed in the EIR.
The meetings are planned for 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 12, 2014 and 10 a.m., Saturday June 14, 2014. The meetings will be held at the Rose Bowl Stadium, Loge Lounge, Level D, Terry Donahue Pavilion. Parking will be on the concourse by Gate F, enter at Gate C.
The meetings are organized by the City’s Planning and Community Development Department. It is not necessary to attend both meetings. Staff will provide the same information at both meetings.
The Rose Bowl Operating Company is exploring the potential of hosting an annual musical festival, which could begin as early as June 2015. The potential event is still in the conceptual phase and public comments are requested as part of the environmental review process.
If approved, the project is an amendment to the Arroyo Seco Public Lands Ordinance. The changes proposed at the Brookside Golf Course are consistent with ongoing historical use of the golf course during displacement (large) events and would allow the Rose Bowl Operating Company to potentially host, among other events, a three-day music festival in the Arroyo Seco. The project would provide the flexibility for the City to choose either nine new additional events, or 13 NFL events.
If you cannot attend either meeting, but would like to provide comments, please contact Ms. Betty Donavanik, Senior Planner, Planning and Community Development Department, (626) 744-6756, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
