Route 91 concert venue land could become LVMPD police facility
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Some of the 16-acre Route 91 concert venue could eventually become home to a facility for Metro’s SWAT team.
The news leaked Monday, and was confirmed Wednesday by MGM, which owns the property.
The land is known as the Las Vegas Village, and before Oct. 1 was historically used to host outdoor music festivals.
MGM confirmed that it was in “preliminary” discussions to transfer a portion of the property to Metro for a SWAT facility.
“They’re not going to be outside shooting weapons. It’s going to be a training center, if that’s what they decide to go with,” said Steve Sisolak, chair of the Clark County Commission.
The property’s value, before the shooting, was estimated at over $30 million.
It’s unclear if MGM intends to sell the property to Metro, or if it would donate the land as a gift to Clark County.
