LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former UNLV and National Basketball Association player's bid to build a more than $1.3 billion sports arena and resort on the Las Vegas Strip has cleared a key regulatory hurdle.

Clark County Commission members approved a zone change Wednesday, but still plan a hearing about possible traffic snarls that could result from the 22,000-seat All Net Resort & Arena backed by businessman Jackie Robinson.

The site on Las Vegas Boulevard just south of Sahara Avenue is a 27 acres. It once had a waterpark.

Robinson says he won't use public funding.

He plans to host concerts, motor sports, fights and shows at a venue surrounded by a nightclub, restaurant and retail plaza.

Robinson says he's been talking with NBA officials about drawing a professional franchise to Las Vegas.
