CITY OF LAS VEGAS NOW ACCEPTS LAND-USE PLANS ONLINE
The city of Las Vegas is the first government agency in Nevada to accept land-use applications and plans online, greatly streamlining the development process. This includes General Plan Amendments, rezoning requests, site plan reviews, variances, special use permits and more.

Residents, engineers and architects will now be able to go through the entire zoning process from their computers, rather than coming down to the Development Services Center located at 333 N. Rancho Drive. Customers will no longer have to submit multiple sets of plans, saving them time and money. Plans and applications can now be processed immediately, allowing for simultaneous reviews among departments and speeding the review process. The process starts with filling out a request form and getting an account online. See more information online regarding training sessions, details and future plans.
