City of Las Vegas planning downtown civic plaza that features open spaces
As the city of Las Vegas developed its master plan, residents complained at public meetings about a lack of open space downtown.
"People want clean, family friendly environments to socialize and play," the city's website says, summarizing the community feedback.
There are about 38 acres of public space in downtown Las Vegas, about 1.3% of the area, which is home to 22,000 people.
