Rose Bowl Renovation Slated to Begin January!
Pasadena’s iconic Rose Bowl Stadium has marked many milestones but none more important than October 11, 2010 when the Pasadena City Council approved funding of the $152 million Rose Bowl Renovation project. $152 million is quite a contrast to the $272 thousand that built this stadium in 1922. Back then the stadium project was financed by offering 10-year subscription tickets for $100 each. For this renovation, a unique funding plan was devised that included bond sales, contributions from the stadium tenants UCLA and Tournament of Roses and private philanthropy.
Great civic cooperation and support set the stage for this to happen. Nearby Rose Bowl neighbors and the wider Pasadena community wholeheartedly supported the renovation project and financing package as it progressed through development.
The Rose Bowl Legacy Campaign
A group of community leaders who love the Rose Bowl have formed Legacy Connections and will conduct a vigorous campaign to raise $25 million to ensure that all of the important, basic components of the renovation project will be realized. The Rose Bowl Legacy Campaign will be launched January 1, 2011 with a Rose Bowl Legacy float in the Tournament of Roses Parade.
The Rose Bowl Legacy Campaign Float Honors America’s Stadium
The Rose Bowl Stadium was voted one of the top venues of the 20th century by Sports Illustrated. It has hosted men’s and women’s World Cup Soccer Championships, Olympic Games, Super Bowls and BCS Championship games. It is home to UCLA football and home to The Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl Game. This history will be reflected on the Rose Bowl Legacy Float at this year’s parade. The float is sponsored by Western Asset; the President and CEO of Western Asset, James W. Hirschmann, will serve as President of the Legacy Connections’ distinguished board of directors, working with Legacy Campaign Director, Andrea Van de Kamp. The Legacy Campaign’s short term goal is to ensure the renovation of the Rose Bowl in time for the 100th Rose Bowl Game in 2014. The long term goal is to save America’s Stadium for future generations
Construction work at the Rose Bowl, begins on January 10, 2011. This first phase of work includes new utilities around the stadium, expansion of four (4) of the south end tunnels, replacement of the north end video board and south end score board. Initially neighbors will see fencing being installed in sections (to accommodate the new utilities), located outside of the stadium to cordon off the utility work as it progresses around the stadium.
Neighbors should expect to see heavy demolition construction traffic starting in February. Additional information will be made available after the first of the year.
