Departments > Economic and Urban Development
The Economic and Urban Development Department creates, coordinates and encourages new development and redevelopment throughout the city of Las Vegas. It increases and diversifies the city’s economy and creates jobs through business attraction, retention and expansion programs. This newly expanded department now includes the Neighborhood Development and Parking divisions. The Neighborhood Development Division oversees and manages grant money used to support affordable housing for Las Vegas families with low incomes, as well as other public services and facilities. The newly reorganized and consolidated Parking Division has begun work on modernizing parking meters, online customer service, downtown parking locator assistance and aiding developers with their parking-related plans.
The EUD coordinates with the Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency (RDA) on day-to-day operations, economic development, job creation and long-term strategic goals.
