Cities in Nevada are required to develop a master plan to guide future decisions about their physical development. Master plans identify current issues and needs in the community, and set forth goals, policies and actions to address issues. They also contain specific functional areas that address many different and complex aspects of urban and suburban development, including conservation, historic preservation, housing, land use, public facilities and services, recreation and open space, safety and transportation.
The city’s current 2020 Master Plan, adopted in 2000 and updated periodically over the following decade, sought to address the challenges of rapid growth and transformation during the 2000s and 2010s. Since many of the goals and policies from that plan were achieved, it is now time to plan how our community will look in the future. The master plan team is made up of the city of Las Vegas, and the Smith Group and includes an executive steering committee and a citizens advisory committee.
As part of the 2050 Master Plan, approximately 3,000 parcels will be undergoing land use changes. Corresponding zoning changes are currently under development, but will NOT be changed at this time, although are anticipated later in 2021.
The plan introduces sixteen community planning areas – neighborhoods, districts, and places that are intended to create a special sense of place and track outcome. Over time, the city will work with the community on the project, similar to the Downtown Las Vegas Masterplan process.
