FAA Survey Pushes Back Oakland Raiders Las Vegas NFL Stadium Plan Review
The Clark County Board of Commissioners orginally planned to meet in the board chambers this morning, and review the Clark County Comprehensive Planning Staff’s analysis and recommendations for the Oakland Raiders Las Vegas NFL Stadium Plan. But there was one snag: because of Clark County regulations tying any project approval to FAA approval where needed, the Clark County Board of Commissioners could not vote today.
Clark County Board of Commissioners Chairperson and Nevada Governor Candidate Steve Sisolak tweeted that the meeting would be delayed three weeks, and “pending FAA approval”. But the Twitter message Commissioner Sisolak wrote impled that the FAA would have its study done in three weeks.
The study comment period, which starts today, is for 37 days from this date. Which means it will done September 21st, and just about one week before the October deadline. That would seem to push back the November ground-breaking, unless the Raiders elect to move forward with it, just for public relations reasons.
I directly contacted the FAA representative and I was told, at first, that Sisolak’s apparent claim was “doubt it” and then wrote “We have not given the stadium proponent any indication when we will complete our review.”
Then, the same person sent a copy of something that just appeared moments later in his email: the FAA survey document that’s sent to what he called “interested parties” with respect to the Oakland Raiders Las Vegas NFL Stadium, and the FAA review request.
This is what I was sent:
We just put out this public notice soliciting comments from interested stakeholders on the Raiders stadium proposal: http://ift.tt/2v36Kki
(When I say we just did this, I mean within the last couple of hours.)
If you look at the form, it reveals some interesting information, and remember, this is a public notice. It reveals the Oakland Raiders contact in this way:
Sponsor: LV Stadium Company, LLC
Attention Of: Dan Ventrelle
Address: 1220 Harbor Bay Parkway
Postal Code: 94502
So, I dialed the phone number for more information from Mr. Ventrelle, the Raiders lawyer, and what I got was Osprey Real Estate Capital. I was then connected to the El Segundo firm’s representative, who I will not name, and he expressed some muted surprise that his firm was connected with the Raiders issue. But get this: he happened to be in, of all places, Las Vegas, at the time!
Now, I stress, the Osprey Real Estate Capital representative said he had no idea how the company’s number got there.
