Report from Middle America: A New Downtown Las Vegas?

Las Vegas is one of many cities trying to develop its downtown. But, as it’s Vegas, it’s not necessarily business as usual. Along with plans to open a new city hall, the mayor has proposed using federal funds to build a museum dedicated to the mob’s involvement in Vegas. Other plans include building a casino resort and an office, retail and residential space, but in the economic downturn, it will be a tough sell. Downtown has never been as popular as the Strip, and has lost business to Indian casinos closer to patrons’ homes.
