Residents are invited to attend two meetings being held on Thursday to discuss the future of downtown Las Vegas.

Both of the meetings will take place at the Historic Fifth Street School. The purpose of the meetings is to continue the community dialogue with stakeholders and solicit feedback on downtown Las Vegas. City leaders, along with a team of consultants led by RTKL, an architecture and urban design firm, are mid-way through an 18-month process to create a new master plan to better facilitate the physical, social, and economic development of downtown Las Vegas over the next 20 years.

At this event, participants will have an opportunity to respond to a new proposed vision for downtown Las Vegas, learn the results of an extensive economic market study and weigh in on new proposed alternative plans for downtown.

The first meeting is taking place from 2 to 4 p.m. and the 2nd meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The school is located at 401 S. Fourth Street.

Participation in these events is free, and valley residents of all ages (18+) who have an interest in Downtown Las Vegas are invited. This is an opportunity to help shape a vision for the future of a vital, urban Las Vegas. 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.
