$581K Study to Look At Safety On Las Vegas Strip

April 5, 2012

Elected officials concerned about safety and the image of the Las Vegas Strip are funneling $581,000 in hotel room tax money into a three-month study of pedestrian areas on the tourist corridor.

The Clark County Commission on Tuesday called for Resort Corridor Workgroup to recommend laws and funding to curb unregulated commercial activity on sidewalks in Nevada’s adult playground.

The advisory panel was established last year with law enforcement, casino and tourism representatives.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that more police and surveillance cameras are among proposals being considered.

Nevada Resort Association chief Virginia Valentine points to letters from tourists complaining that walking on the Strip is a “horrible experience.”

The American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada says sidewalks are public, and it’s closely watching the recommendations.
