Town Hall Meeting On Proposed Downtown Las Vegas Soccer Stadium
Thursday, Sept. 25, 6:30 p.m.
Free and open to the public.
Development Services Center, 333 N. Rancho Drive, fifth floor, Great Basin Room.
Representatives from the city of Las Vegas, and stadium developers the Cordish Companies and Findlay Sports and Entertainment, are scheduled to present information as well as take comments from the public. If approved by City Council on Oct. 1, the term sheet would clear the way for the Cordish Companies and Findlay Sports and Entertainment, to work to secure a Major League Soccer franchise to play at the multi-use stadium. The Oct. 1 council vote is not the final vote in this process and additional facets of the project would have to be approved later this year for the project to move forward. In addition to the town hall meetings, the city is also offering ways to comment on social media. Through Oct. 1, residents can share their thoughts in an online town hall called Crowd Hall at https://crowdhall.com/h/303/. A Google Hangout will be held Sept. 30 at 11 a.m. Use #stadiumhangout to ask questions. Follow the city on Google+ at google.com/+cityoflasvegas.
First Tuesday Program
On the first Tuesday of every month, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department opens its doors to valley substations from 7 to 9 p.m. in order for the community to have an open forum of communication with the police officers who patrol their neighborhoods. This is an excellent opportunity for the residents of Ward 1 to learn more about what is going on in their community.

Check Out Downtown’s First Fridays
The air is light and the spirit festive in downtown, where, once a month, the pedestrian-friendly streets transform into a huge block party during First Friday.
First Friday is a stage for local galleries and Las Vegas' vital downtown cultural scene. It's a place to meet friends new and old, and rejoice in the preservation and innovation of an historical neighborhood. Visitors come from near and far to people-watch, sample new restaurants and revel at area bars.
