Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Some downtown Las Vegas residents will get to stay in their homes after getting word that they would be forced to leave.
The Downtown Coalition sent letters to tenants at the Town Terrace Apartments that said they would be evicted to make way for renovations.
The property on Seventh Street is being turned into housing for local teachers.
But, the people that lived there don't want to leave.
It turns out that the letters were sent in error.
The Downtown Coalition insists that there was no intention to evict the tenants and that they want to give the tenants one year of free rent with some renovation provisions.
At the end of one year, the coalition will revisit the situation.
