LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The Clark County Commission is considering ways to clean up the Las Vegas Strip, making it more inviting for tourists without trampling on people's rights.
Many ideas were presented Tuesday at the Commission's meeting. Some included emptying trash cans more often and scaling back on street performers. An additional idea was to create a night court to speed the process of dealing with offenders, since most offenses occur at night.
Commissioner Steve Sisolak proposed a pedestrian traffic study to give a bird’s-eye view of the problem.
"[The study is] absolutely critical. It's the linchpin of this entire thing,” he said. “It's the most important thing we have to do. That's going to determine where the Strip is too narrow, and where it's wide enough to allow for some extra activities.”
There's also a suggestion to put more police officers on the Strip, but getting the money to pay them is a problem.
The traffic study, with an estimate price tag of $581,000, would take six months to complete. County commissioners want to wait until then before making any changes official.
