    What's New with the Downtown Redevelopment

    From the City of Las Vegas Office of Business Development:
    Julie Quisenberry - Senior Development Officer
    Bill Arent - Redevelopment Officer

    The goal of redevelopment activity is to work in concert with the community and private sector to reverse the physical, economic and social decay within its designated boundaries. Under the guidance of the director of the Office of Business Development, the Redevelopment Agency is responsible for the day-to-day tasks of the agency. It also ensures that the policy directives of the agency board and executive director are executed.

    The redevelopment area encompasses 3,079 acres. The area consists of downtown Las Vegas, Las Vegas Boulevard to Sahara Avenue. Other commercial districts include the Owens Avenue, Martin Luther King Boulevard and Eastern Avenue corridors.

    Participation in the downtown redevelopment process requires interested parties to demonstrate how their project complements the redevelopment strategy. An applicant must also demonstrate the financial and managerial capacity to undertake and successfully complete the project, the needs for the agency's assistance, and the benefit of the completed project to downtown Las Vegas.
