Las Vegas City Council To Hear Bill That Would Speed Up Business Development Process
Council To Also Recognize National Pedestrian Safety Month


      The Las Vegas City Council will hear a bill that if approved will continue work to speed up the business development process at the Wednesday, Oct. 2, City Council meeting that will begin at 9 a.m. in City Hall council chambers, located at 495 S. Main St.

      Item #50 amends city code that relates to the submission of tentative maps. Currently, there is a required 14 days between zoning approvals and approvals of the tentative map. If approved, zoning requests and the tentative map will run concurrently, for final action before the City Council, which eliminates the 14-day waiting period and ultimately saves the developer 30 days.

      In addition, Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman will recognize National Pedestrian Safety Month in conjunction with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. The city is in the midst of a five-year program that began in 2012 to make pedestrian safety improvements to roadways and sidewalks.

      Also, Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian will recognize National Fire Prevention Month and share safety tips.

      Councilman Bob Beers is scheduled to recognize the city’s October Citizens of the Month – the organizers, staff and competitors with the Shriners Hospital for Children’s Open. The golf tournament is scheduled to begin Oct. 14 at TPC Summerlin, located at 1700 Village Center Circle.

      In addition, the City Council will also recognize National Arts & Humanities Month and the Las Vegas Natural History Museum.

      Finally, the City Council will also recognize employees who have exhibited great teamwork and are building community to make life better.
