Coliseum Commission changed


The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission Wednesday approved a series of reforms to make governance of the historic facility more streamlined and accountable.

The Joint Powers Agreement, the Coliseum’s governing document, would be amended to cut the size of the commission under the proposal passed by the commission. The revised structure was created to meet new needs that would follow a pending revised lease agreement with USC.

The revised agreement would cut the size of the nine-member commission to three members, and would contract the commission’s daily management functions to Los Angeles County.

“This is the kind of nimble, stable and accountable governing structure the new Coliseum Commission will need in the 21st century,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.
