2045 Downtown Master Plan

On June 15, 2016, the Las Vegas City Council adopted the Vision 2045 Downtown Las Vegas Master Plan. The document replaces the Downtown Centennial Plan, which since 2000 guided the city policies and regulations and provided the envelope for urban design form within the downtown boundaries. The study area has been almost doubled, if compared to the previous plan, and the recognition of four new downtown districts now allows for the inclusion of some underserved areas that will benefit from the boundary expansion and the holistic direction for downtown. The document was built upon extensive outreach and outstanding participation from community members, stakeholders and government officials during all phases.

The plan revolves around the concept of mixed-use hubs, identified as the 10 catalytic areas for future investments, and the neighborhood centers for the 12 districts that constitute downtown. For each district the plan outlines its development needs, specific projects to be carried, a summary strategy, conceptual development yields to channel, and current and future transportation and land-use working material detailed to the parcel level. This solid base allowed the city and community to promptly start some of the projects, such as bike share, multi-modal transportation capital improvements, and a reconfiguration of the downtown trails and open space network.



The Vision 2045 Downtown Master Plan is currently in its implementation phase. View the implementation Plan presentation here.

Currently we are working on an innovative update to the zoning code for downtown, known as the Downtown Form-Based Code project. For more information on the Form-Based Code, visit www.formbasedcode.vegas
