Statement from Henderson City Manager Jacob Snow regarding the BLM decision on the Stadium Land Deal
May 10, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE
PLEASE CONTACT BUD CRANOR, (702) 267-2053
The City respects today’s decision by the BLM to cancel the land sale and not issue a patent to Silver State Land, LLC for the 480 acres of BLM land in West Henderson. The City appreciates its government-to-government partnership with the BLM and we look forward to continuing to work with the BLM on projects that benefit our residents.
As the City has settled all of its litigation against Mr. Milam and the other defendants involved in the dispute, we hope that today’s decision will bring closure to the controversy surrounding the arena property. The City’s primary goal has always been and will continue to be to develop West Henderson in a way that benefits the community the most. Today’s decision by the BLM allows the City to remain focused on the most appropriate way to develop that land in the future.
