The Citizens Advisory Committee for the Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency gives community members the opportunity to provide input and advice on Redevelopment Area projects and programs. The committee can also propose new programs and projects. These positions are unpaid.
The city of Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency (RDA) was created in 1986 by the Nevada Legislature to help turn around the urban decay in downtown Las Vegas.
The RDA promotes the redevelopment of downtown Las Vegas and surrounding older commercial districts by working with developers, property owners and the community to accomplish beneficial revitalization efforts, create jobs and eliminate urban decay. The RDA coordinates with the city of Las Vegas Economic and Urban Development Department on day-to-day operations, business development and long-term strategic goals.
The Las Vegas Redevelopment Area encompasses 3,948 acres. The area roughly includes the greater downtown Las Vegas area east of I-15, south of Washington Avenue, north of Sahara Avenue and west of Maryland Parkway. It also includes the Charleston Boulevard, Martin L. King Boulevard and Eastern Avenue corridors.
Although the RDA is legally a separate entity from the city of Las Vegas, city council members sit on its board and provide input on projects.
How To Get Appointed: Send a letter and resume along with a completed interest form to the City Clerk. Based on the submittal, citizens will be considered by the City Council when a vacancy occurs on the board in which they have an interest or particular expertise. City residency may be required.
