According to the Las Vegas Review, a vacant site near the Las Vegas Ballpark® in Downtown Summerlin, is being proposed to host up to 20 live events per year, including nighttime events and possibly fireworks.

The Howard Hughes Corp. is looking to host events in a vacant site located near Summerlin residential developments and the ballpark, home of the Las Vegas Aviators® Triple-A baseball team.

According to documents from Clark County, the real estate development company wants a permit that would allow up to 20 temporary outdoor commercial events per year on an undeveloped 117-acre project site at the intersection of Griffith Peak Drive and South Town Center Drive.There are existing multiple-family and single-family residential developments located immediately to the east and south of the site of this area.
