New vision for the site of the Route 91 Harvest Festival

LAS VEGAS - New details about a plan for the site that once housed the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
It was only three months ago when 58 people were murdered at the grounds which are actually called Las Vegas Village and owned by MGM.

No events have taken place at Las Vegas Village since One October. Metro confirmed Wednesday that it has had preliminary talks with MGM about using part of the land for a SWAT facility. Metro's South Area Command is not far away, near the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign.

A spokesperson said both sides had just one conversation. It was exploratory and couldn't confirm when the discussion actually happened.

MGM Resorts released a statement that says talks are in "the conceptual stages" and "no final decisions" have been made. Neither side would elaborate on where things stand.

For now, the 15 acres stands as an empty reminder of the valley's darkest day. Clark County said no plans have been filed for the Route 91 site. Any construction would need commission approval.
