UNLV seeks timeline extension for stadium project

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 28, 2014

The UNLV Campus Improvement Authority Board agreed to request an extension of the timeline for its work on a proposed UNLV stadium.

The CIAB is tasked with submitting a report and accompanying recommendations to the Nevada Legislature by Sept. 30 on the need for, feasibility of, and financing options related to a new stadium on or near the UNLV campus.

The CIAB has also discussed the type, size and potential cost of various stadium options. The report and recommendations are to be presented for discussion during the 2015 Nevada Legislative Session.

The extension, which would require action by state legislators in 2015, would enable the CIAB to continue its work through the 2017 Nevada Legislative Session.

In the meantime, UNLV will continue to pursue obtaining or securing options on property to accommodate the potential stadium or alternative uses for UNLV.

The CIAB is scheduled to meet on Sept. 11 and Sept. 25 at noon in the Blasco Event Wing of the UNLV Foundations Building.
