Proposed Title 19.07 Transit Oriented Zoning
To implement the land use place types created by the 2050 Master Plan, a new Chapter to the Title 19 Unified Development Code will soon be proposed to implement the vision of the city of Las Vegas Master Plan. This new chapter will enable and permit comprehensively planned developments to provide high quality mixed-use developments adjacent to built or planned high capacity transit lines. The rezoning of properties to these new districts accomplishes the goals and outcomes because they:
- Develop compact and mixed use neighborhoods with walkable access to jobs, amenities, education services and transit
- Focus new development in infill and redevelopment areas
- Utilize new development models that provide a broad mix of housing and neighborhood types to accommodate residents with varied incomes and in different stages of life
- Improve the quality of districts and neighborhoods to promote an authentic, vibrant sense of place
- Connect and enhance accessible bike and pedestrian facilities as part of a safe, efficient complete street and highway network that moves people and goods.
- Make transit options more convenient and better integrated with vibrant neighborhood and employment centers, better connecting people to their destinations
- Prioritize key redevelopment opportunities and incentivize and actively promote their reuse, and
- Increase affordable housing types and choices for all income levels near existing and new employment centers.
This Chapter will be applicable to all properties designated “Mixed Use Center,” “Corridor Mixed-Use,” or “Neighborhood Center Mixed Use” (TOD-1, TOD-2, TOC-2, TOC-2, NMXU) on the 2050 General Plan Map. Please visit this page for future updates and a copy of the proposed ordinance amending LVMC Title 19.
Proposed Trails ordinance (21-0463-TXT1)
Complete Streets provide opportunities for all users to safely travel – transit users, bicyclists, and pedestrians. The City is proposing amendments to Title 19.04 to create updated and new trail and bike facility standards in alignment with the 2050 Master Plan’s Complete Street goal and the Trails Network of the Master Plan for Streets and Highways. The amendment adds standards for Regional Trails, Shared-Use Trails, Urban Paths (Trails, Protected Bike Lanes and Cycletracks), Equestrian Trails, and Off-Street Trails.
Proposed Tree ordinance
To immediately address opportunities, challenges, and implementation strategies related to trees and urban heat outlined in the plan’s Urban Forestry, Environmental Justice, and Hazards goals, the City is looking to amend its codes to address the City’s urban forest. Check back soon for details and a copy of the proposed ordinance amending LVMC Title 13 and LVMC Title 19.

Maryland Pkwy Transit Oriented Development Plan
The City of Las Vegas will consider adoption of the Maryland Pkwy Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Corridor Plan. This plan supports implementation of both the 2050 Master Plan and the Vision 2045 Downtown Las Vegas Masterplan, and was jointly conducted by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) and Clark County. Strategies will be implemented from these plans, including the construction of the Maryland Pkwy BRT line, the first RTC OnBoard high-capacity transit line, and rezoning of properties along the corridor to the existing Title 19.09 Form-Based Code and proposed Title 19.07.
