The Henderson City Council will consider a resolution at its January 2 regular meeting to offer the Raiders organization the opportunity to purchase a 55 acre parcel of land near the Henderson Executive Airport for a practice facility and corporate headquarters (Pictured: Concept logo by Chris Creamer at news.sportslogos.net).
“This resolution is the first step in the process of inviting the Raiders to build a new practice facility and corporate headquarters on 55 acres in the City of Henderson,” said Mayor Debra March. “We are extremely excited by the potential for this deal which would bring hundreds of new jobs to our community and create other economic development opportunities. I look forward to discussing this land sale proposal at our January 2 meeting and I’m very hopeful that we’ll be welcoming the Raiders practice facility and corporate headquarters to Henderson. We’re only on the 20 yard line when it comes to this proposal, but we’re looking to score a touchdown if this sale goes through.”
The minimum price for the property, which will be offered through a direct sale under the resolution, is set at $6.05 million. The project’s developer has advised the city that the headquarters and practice facility will create an estimated 250 full-time jobs for non-players.
If the resolution is approved on January 2, then a public meeting would be held on February 6 for the City Council to consider an offer for the property and to possibly approve a binding purchase and sale agreement between the buyer and the city.
