Presented by Robert T. Summerfield, Planning Section Manager

The Centennial Plan, in use since 2000, guided downtown development. Since then Las Vegas rebounded from an economic recession and the downtown area grew beyond its traditional boundaries. The new Downtown Master Plan considers three fundamentals driving growth that include historic buildings combined with a strong gaming legacy, communications infrastructure and a low tax, business-friendly climate. Conversely, there are significant challenges including high land costs, vacant and underutilized land, lack of mobility and too little local-serving retail and services in auto oriented patterns.

 

  • Attendees will learn about the public outreach and engagement process for the new plan and how Vision 2045 Downtown Plan defines objectives for a better quality of life and a more inclusive downtown for those living in and visiting Las Vegas.
  • Attendees will understand why the Planning Area was expanded to more than four times the size of the previous plan area and how the city assessed the areas included in the expansion (neighborhoods, services/amenities, new development, and sphere of influence).
  • Attendees will learn about the integrated growth approach that includes RTC’s Mobility Masterplan, the Hundred Plan for the Historic Westside, the Las Vegas Medical District Masterplan and the Project Neon highway improvements.
  • Attendees will gain knowledge of the “big ideas” driving Vision 2045 including the positive impacts of planning and urban architecture that will contribute to making better places in the transformation of this urban environment.
