"Inglewood wants to build its own elevated transit system to ferry visitors to The Forum, the adjacent NFL stadium opening in 2020 and a potential Clippers arena," reports Jason Henry.

The people mover would connect to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Authority’s Crenshaw/LAX light-rail line, traveling 1.8 miles "along Market Street to Manchester Boulevard and then south on Prairie Avenue," according to Henry. Each of the destination venues would have a stop.

"The proposed people mover is estimated to cost more than $600 million to build and an additional $18 million to $20 million annually to operate, according to a report released by the city."

The city has identified an Enhanced Infrastructure Finance District as a potential funding mechanism for the project, which is has dubbed Envision Inglewood. The city will now commence a process of drafting an environmental impact report.
