February 22 UNLVNow Regents working group postponed
A Board of Regents working group meeting scheduled for Feb. 22 on the UNLVNow project has been postponed. UNLV will provide an update to the Board of Regents at its scheduled Feb. 28/March 1, though no action will be taken at that time.
UNLVNow officials are still working on the scope and final cost estimates of the mega-events center through conversations with the project’s many stakeholders.
UNLVNow is a large, complex and important project—significant on many levels for the campus and our community. If constructed, the project has the potential to bring in close to $400 million in economic impact each year to Las Vegas. The UNLVNow team feels it is essential to be responsive to our partners and the resort industry to make this project right for the university and the community.
While having a real sense of urgency, the team is committed to the principle that getting it right is more important than getting it done fast.
The UNLVNow team remains focused on achieving broad consensus as we move the project forward. Project updates will be posted to the UNLVNow website as they are available.
