The item will be on the Wednesday, June 5, City Council agenda following the 8:30 a.m. Redevelopment Agency meeting in Council Chambers on the 2nd floor of Las Vegas City Hall, located at 495 S. Main St.
If approved, the ENA would allow for discussion of plans for a new stadium and mixed-use development on the 62 acres where Cashman Field is currently located at 850 N. Las Vegas Blvd. During the 180-day term of the agreement, the city and Renaissance will work to draft a master development agreement that would then be brought back to the City Council for consideration.
