The Las Vegas City Council recently had a special meeting to create new priorities for the city over the next 3-5 years. The last time the council set priorities was in 2017. A majority of the current city council were not seated at that time. The council heard the results from a recent citizen survey conducted by Applied Analysis, Inc. that asked citizens what they thought the city’s priorities should be and what the city should look like. City residents ranked public safety as the highest priority issue that the city should address in the next 30 years: This was followed by health care, education/youth development, housing and community services as the top 5.

The council had length discussions and settled on these priorities:

Public safety (which includes homelessness), health care and diversify the economy (which includes education). 

Now that the priorities have been established, the city will work to make sure staff and funding are aligned with the priorities.
