NFL Stadium District

STADIUM ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT | CLARK COUNTY, NV

Master Plan

Scope of Work

The project goal is to create a community-driven plan that utilizes the NFL stadium as a catalyst to re-envision the existing industrial area as a multi-use entertainment and transit-oriented district. Recommendations from the Land Use Plan will help transform the area surrounding the stadium into a walkable, urban core. A simultaneous Stadium District Transportation Plan (Transportation Plan) for the same area will be managed by a separate team of consultants, and coordination between the Land Use Plan and Transportation Plan shall be a priority.

 

The Land Use Plan’s conceptual framework and subsequent Design Overlay should incorporate public input and multi-modal transportation improvements, based on the increased traffic demand from the stadium, to encourage walkability, connections between the nodes of community activity within and adjacent to the stadium area, foster a mix of uses, create a sense of place, and develop strategies that support a strong and diverse economy. The Land Use Plan shall also be consistent with the Clark County mission “to provide responsible, progressive, and results-oriented government that is responsive, accessible, and accountable to our citizens, ensuring their right to cost-effective and open government.”

Our firm is working to create a vision for the district around the new stadium, to include:

 

goals, policies, and recommended changes to the land use plan to achieve the vision, as well as recommended zoning regulation changes and design guidelines that could later be incorporated into an overlay district for the area.

 

The Master Plan is intended to work in concert with the:

  • Clark County Master Plan

  • Title 30 Unified Development Code

  • Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada

  • Southern Nevada Strong Regional Plan

  • 2017-2040 Regional Transportation Plan
