The Nye County Commission on Tuesday denied a permit for an event organizers dubbed "Peacestock 51" and planned to hold Sept. 20 in Amargosa Valley.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports commissioners raised concerns about resident safety, dust, environmental damage and the remoteness of the site 90 miles from Las Vegas.

The denial came a day after neighboring Lincoln County drafted an emergency declaration but gave conditional approval for events in tiny towns near a remote military test area that has long been a focus of UFO conspiracy theories.

Those events in Hiko and Rachel would be about 100 miles from Amargosa Valley.
