Parks? Playgrounds? Affordable Housing? Not just part of a wish list – it’s part of a master plan. The City of Las Vegas wants to encourage residents of East Las Vegas to “imagine more” and share what they want to see in their neighborhoods.
The City of Las Vegas has launched the “Our Future East Las Vegas” campaign to explore the needs of its residents and create a long-term master plan to revitalize the area.
“Our Future East Las Vegas” is a multifaceted vision through various initiatives aimed at bringing economic development, housing options, public infrastructure and services to neighborhoods in the east valley.
The campaign will kick off with input opportunities for the community to understand what services and improvements they prioritize. There will be several community and engagement events, and a community stakeholder working group will be created.
One of the initiatives is an affordable housing project of single-family homes, senior housing and multi-family units on the former site of the Desert Pines Golf Course, near Mojave and Bonanza roads, that will also incorporate commercial space, a community center, a workforce training center and park space.
Other goals include:
- increasing tree canopies utilizing native and adaptive drought-tolerant tree species
- bringing parks or trails within 85 percent of housing dwellings
- exploring additional community facilities, transportation improvements and increased education, health and food accessibility.
