The team submitted its Raiders stadium parking plan for its new Las Vegas facility and it definitely won’t be pedestrian friendly.

Fans might want to bring comfortable walking shoes if they are planning on going to a game.

A parking report draft by the Kimley-Horn and Associates planning consultant lists four parking areas under consideration, and none of them are closer than 1.5 miles from the stadium, slated to open in 2020.

Clark County Commissioners called for a plan last year and set September as a deadline.

The requested 16,250 parking spaces for the $1.8 billion stadium that will hold 65,000.

The Raiders had already received a waiver from the commission for an 85.4 percent reduction for parking on the property. Most of those would be reserved for employees, media, and VIPS.

The general public would have to seek spots for their autos at one of four locations.

The first is Orleans Casino, which could provide between 3,700 to 4,625 spaces.

Officials with the stadium and casino owner, Boyd Gaming Corp., agreed to use the northern end of the property, which is about 1.9 miles away from the stadium.

The second spot is across the street from the casino, which would provide 1,025 to 1,175 spaces.

The other two are near the south end of the Las Vegas Strip.

One is 2.8 miles away and is near two large shopping malls, including an outlet mall, and calls for anywhere between 2,000 to 2,500 spaces. Steve Sisolak, who is on the commission, said it is still early in the process.“It requires a little over 16,000 and no they didn’t get a variance (to not meet that),” Sisolak said.
