If you’ve got problems with walking or taking public transportation in downtown Las Vegas, now’s your chance to complain. And if you forego the opportunity, don’t blame the Regional Transportation Commission later.
The week of Oct. 29, two town hall meetings took place to let downtowners know about a community mobility study that’s going on now through Dec. 14. People interested in giving their input about biking, busing and walking downtown–within a three-mile radius of the Bonneville Transit Center–can fill out a survey at one of two upcoming public hearings or take the survey online at RTCSNV.com.
Philip Banea, who’s leading the study, is looking to map people’s patterns of getting around—and to and from—downtown. After analyzing the results of the study, Banea says, the RTC will make recommendations for improvements to the appropriate planning and public works agencies. He expects that work to be done by June.
“This is going to impact a lot of people—all those moving to live and work downtown,” said Felipe Ortiz, special assistant to Ward 3 Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Coffin. “Give your opinion now; don’t be the one who looks back later and says, ‘Why is it like this?’”
Public hearings take place on Nov. 29, 5-7 p.m. at the City of Las Vegas Development Services building; and on Dec. 5, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the East Las Vegas Community Center. If you have any questions, contact Aileen Pastor at (702) 676-1606, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
