DOWNTOWN CURFEW FOR YOUTH
In an effort to increase the safety of downtown Las Vegas, the Las Vegas City Council has approved a bill that creates a separate curfew specific to downtown Las Vegas. The 9 p.m. curfew went into effect Oct. 4 and affects youth under the age of 18 from being in the area bound by Main Street, Maryland Parkway, Stewart Avenue and Bridger until 5 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and legal holidays.  There are several exceptions.  Go online for all the details. 

VEGAS IS GOING GREEN!
We are going green and want to know how you are too! Are you using solar in your home? Do you carpool? Do you do something creative with your recyclables? Then we want to hear it. Use #Vegasgoesgreen in your online conversation to let us know. To learn more about recycling, solar energy and more, check out www.lasvegasnevada.gov/sustaininglasvegas.
