Two community meetings scheduled on proposed soccer stadium

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jul 24, 2014

Two public meetings have been scheduled for the Cordish Companies and Findlay Sports to share financing plans for the proposed soccer stadium for Symphony Park.

The first meeting will begin at 6 p.m. on Aug. 4 at the Doolittle Community Center, located at 1950 North J Street.

The second meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on  Aug. 7 in City Council chambers, located on the second floor of City Hall, 495 South Main Street.

The Aug. 7 meeting will be televised live on KCLV Channel 2.

Residents may also provide their comments in an online Crowd Hall that has been created on this website. The online town hall will be open for comments until Aug. 11.

The City Council is scheduled to consider the matter at the Aug. 20 Council meeting.

The City of Las Vegas is in an exclusive negotiating agreement with the Cordish Companies to build a state-of-the-art soccer stadium on the north end of Symphony Park in the heart of downtown.

Plans call for the group to purchase a Major League Soccer (MLS) team to play at the new stadium.
