EPIA urges Dodger Stadium to keep Scott Gate closed


The Echo Park Improvement Association delivered a letter to the CD1 and CD13 council members Gil Cedillo and Mitch O’Farrell on our recommendations on the opening of the Scott Gate at Dodger Stadium to entry traffic.

The EPIA recommends that the Dodger Stadium Scott Avenue Gate remain closed to stadium entry, as it has over almost 10 years. We believe that opening the gate will cause many unintended problems with the neighborhood and will not change stadium entry times in any way sufficient to justify the cost both in money and community good will. The EPIA also recommends that the gate be open for exit purposes only in games and events with attendance greater than 40,000, again, as has been the practice in the past.

In addition to the above, the letter also requests the Dodgers make additional necessary preparations if the gate will open regardless of our recommendation. Click here to download and view the full letter.
