"UNLV board begins process of once again pursuing stadium project," Las Vegas Sun, October 31, 2013

Posted: November 1, 2013

The UNLV Campus Improvement Authority Board will begin seeking applications next month for an experienced consulting company who will help study how state, university and business leaders can build an on-campus stadium that they hope will bring hundreds of millions of dollars to the Las Vegas economy. The 11-member stadium authority has been charged by the Legislature with studying and recommending a cost, scope and financing plan for a UNLV football stadium that will host several major events each year. The consulting company, which is expected to be hired by mid-December, will serve the role of a project manager and help the stadium board deliver a comprehensive report to state lawmakers by Sept. 30.
