Las Vegas Officials Craft Plans to Improve Northern Area

LAS VEGAS (AP) — New apartments, shops and restaurants could be coming to the empty lots and vacant buildings in north Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the city’s plans are expected to be mapped and modeled by fall and construction could start in 15 months.

City director of economic and business development Gina Gavan says a draft of business incentives is still in the works to bring development to a 15-acre property.

Potential buyers have expressed interest in vacant land that was the site of a failed $100 million retail complex.

Medians, wider sidewalks and landscaping planned for 2017 are intended to slow traffic.

City crews repair vandalism in the area daily. Over $10,000 was recently spent to wrap traffic utility boxes with landscapes and other images that may deter graffiti.
