LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is keeping an eye on a petition to block the demolition of the Riviera hotel-casino.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Srf0BV ) that LVCVA legal counsel Luke Pushnig told the board about the petition last week. It was recently filed by Henderson resident Kelden Engel.

Engel’s petition seeks approval of a local ordinance that would prevent the demolition of buildings on land donated by a particular Clark County assessor’s parcel — a legal description of land that houses the Riviera.

The LVCVA plans to use the land for a Las Vegas Convention Center expansion project. If the petition picks up steam, implosion events scheduled for this summer may have to be postponed.

Engel says he’s in the early stages of gathering support.
