Clark County plans to close Hacienda from Polaris Avenue to the Mandalay Bay parking garage during major events at Allegiant Stadium.
The festivities were for Allegiant Air employees to celebrate the carrier’s deal with the Raiders to name the under-construction stadium in Las Vegas after the airline.
The area around the Raiders stadium may not be the best or easiest place to build a big project or open a retail business.
The $1.84 billion stadium project about a mile west of Las Vegas Boulevard, was dumb luck for nearby landlords. A few bought property right across from the stadium site as recently as 2015 — two years before the football team purchased its land — and others have owned parcels much longer.
The Oakland Raiders may be negotiating to play at Oakland Alameda County Coliseum through 2020, but that doesn’t worry Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak.
