The North Las Vegas mayor delivered the State of the City address Thursday.

Mayor John Lee said Faraday Future is planning to have a mini-plant built in North Las Vegas in August.

City officials explained how the company will resume construction next month with plans to have a 650,000-square-foot facility completed by summer.

"I just trust them, and they just got $2.18 billion and I know they have some big plans in the future to announce," Lee said. "You'd have to talk to them about that, but I'd watch that company will be in North Las Vegas building those cars in the future."

In addition, Lee says the new Amazon fulfillment center set to open this summer as well as the continued work at the Hyperloop test site have him optimistic about the future.
