LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Development in Las Vegas was the focus of Mayor Carolyn Goodman's annual State of the City address.

In her second speech of its kind, the mayor looked back at 2012 and gave a sneak peak of what to expect this year.

A lot of emphasis in the address was on the developments over 2012, including arts and culture, the Mob and Neon museums as well as the Smith Center opening.

In 2013, the mayor says expect more.

Two new programs would give investors an incentive to buy older properties in downtown.

The downtown area expects to expand -- not to mention Zappos -- which is relocating to the old City Hall.

Mayor Goodman took the time to tie economic growth with education, calling the state legislature to step up.

She said she hopes to see the medical field expand too, noting the new Cleveland Clinic in Symphony Park as bringing medical tourism to Nevada for the first time.

And in that same area, negotiations for a sports arena are still in the works. Also, 36 new stores are set for the Premium Outlets, perhaps indicating more growth in 2013.
