INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — The Inglewood City Council on Tuesday night approved plans to build a proposed NFL stadium in the Los Angeles area that includes St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke as a partner.

With a 5-0 vote, the council approved the $2 billion plan at a meeting Tuesday night.

The vote fast-tracks construction by allowing the city to avoid a public vote and long environmental review, and clears a path for a return of the NFL to the area for the first time in more than 20 years.

The project now depends on the partnership seeking to build a stadium on the site of the former Hollywood Park horse track and on the NFL, which has emphasized that any decision to return to the LA-area ultimately lies with the league.
