Presentation of Draft Walkable Community Plan for East Las Vegas
Tuesday, April 22, 6 to 7 p.m.
Latin Chamber of Commerce, 300 N. 13th St.
The city of Las Vegas has completed the Draft Walkable Community Plan for East Las Vegas and seeks feedback from residents regarding what the plan should include. The plan area is centered in the southeast sector of the city near the intersection of Eastern and Sunrise avenues, with boundaries extending in an approximate one-half mile radius from this intersection (see map).
 
Walkable communities provide convenient walking access to schools, stores and civic amenities, reduce vehicle miles traveled, increase alternative transportation options, and increase health and social interaction. A walkable community plan provides recommendations for improvements that allow residents to easily and safely walk to community amenities and conduct normal daily activities. The plan provides a framework for establishing a safe and accessible network of community assets within a comfortable 10-minute walk from the center of the plan area. The plan will not change the zoning or property land-use designations, but will focus on physical improvements, such as crosswalk enhancements, upgrading sidewalks and adding shade trees. See the flier.
