LOS ANGELES (AP) - The plan to build a football stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs that could become home for an NFL team has taken a step forward.

Organizers behind the project submitted more than 20,000 petition signatures Monday to get the plan before voters in Inglewood, where the stadium would be built.

The Los Angeles Times says (https://lat.ms/1D0iNN7 ) that’s more than twice as many as needed to put the measure on the ballot later this year.

County election officials must verify the signatures.

The proposal envisions a domed, 80,000-seat stadium rising on the site of a defunct horse track, as part of a larger development of homes, parks and office space.

Developers behind the plan include The Kroenke Group, a company controlled by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
