Meetings on Downtown Master Plan Wednesday

Posted at 12:56 PM, Mar 08, 2016

The last public outreach meetings for the new Downtown Master Plan on Wednesday will include a preview of the Preferred Alternative for public discussion and input.

The first session will be from 2 to 4 p.m. and the second from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Historic Fifth Street School in downtown.

While this is the last public opportunity for dialogue directly with the planning team, residents may still provide public comment through March 23 via the website

City leaders, along with a team of consultants led by RTKL, an architecture and urban design firm, will present the Preferred Alternative. There has been an 18-month process to create a new master plan for the physical, social and economic development of downtown Las Vegas over the next 20 years.

Participation in these events is free, and valley residents who have an interest in downtown Las Vegas are invited.  

Following the Wednesday public meetings, the Downtown Master Plan will be presented and discussed at City Planning Commission on April 12.  Members of the Las Vegas City Council will then discuss and vote on the plan at the May 18 City Council meeting.

The Downtown Master Plan is one of several initiatives that are part of a city-wide master planning effort, “City By Design,” that is creating a strategic vision for the city’s future.
