That's the apparent compromise between Anschutz Entertainment Group and the Natural Resources Defense Council in a dispute over how to handle the added burdens of the proposed stadium. NRDC attorney Damon Nagami says the two sides have "come to a consensus." From the LAT:
After a monthlong mediation with the Natural Resources Defense Council, AEG has offered to devote at least 17.5% of its eventual carbon mitigation budget to funding local measures such as tree-planting and solar panel installations, attorney William Delvac said Monday. The NRDC helped AEG's stadium bid secure an expedited process for resolving potential legal challenges from state legislators last year, but in May NRDC attorney David Pettit blogged that he was "disappointed to read that the promises made in Sacramento by AEG were not reflected" in the environmental plans.
But the mediation process left some groups unsatisfied. Becky Dennison, co-director of the Los Angeles Community Action Network, a group of downtown residents, said the stadium excluded several affected neighborhoods from its analysis and focused too much on the Pico-Union neighborhood. Dennison also said she thinks the stadium's presence will push out lower-income downtown residents. "We have received no response on our recommendations," Dennison said.
