INGLEWOOD – The city of Inglewood will hold a Public Hearing Tuesday, January 4, to receive public comment on Ordinance designating certain portion of the city as “Event Zones”.
The zone is designed to regulate certain activities in connection with Super Bowl LVI related events between Feb. 10 – 15.
The city has begun promoting a free three day concert in coordination with Inglewood Unified, and the Taste of Inglewood will also return in the days leading up to Sunday’s event.
The city has yet to adequately address issues with parking and congestion, and are also grappling with the departure of a half dozen sworn officers in the police department.
Inglewood Mayor James Butts has yet to respond to multiple questions from residents on how the event zone ordinance will impact them in the lead up to the Super Bowl.
According to the city’s website, there is not a Parking and Traffic Commission meeting planned for this month for residents to voice their concerns on the overwhelming amount of traffic that will engross the city in less than six weeks.
