The Aug. 7 meeting will be televised live on KCLV Channel 2.

Residents may also provide their comments in an online Crowd Hall that has been created at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/stadium. The online town hall will be open for comments until Aug. 11. The City Council is scheduled to consider the matter at the Aug. 20 Council meeting.

The city of Las Vegas is in an exclusive negotiating agreement with the Cordish Companies to build a state-of-the-art soccer stadium on the north end of Symphony Park in the heart of downtown. The Cordish Companies have partnered with Findlay Sports a local company owned by the Findlay Family.

Plans call for the group to purchase a Major League Soccer team to play at the new stadium.
