Growth By Design
As Mayor Lee recently outlined at the 2022 State of the City event, North Las Vegas is moving at the speed of business!
For the second year in a row, the value of projects that passed through the City’s Permit Application Center surpassed $1 billion. Over the past eight years, there has been more than 100 million square feet of new construction in North Las Vegas, enough to build a four-foot wide sidewalk from coast-to-coast.
Global brands and innovative companies realize the strategic value of doing business in North Las Vegas. Nuro, Tapestry, Air Liquide, Kroger, Ball Corporation and Evanesce are just a few of the major companies who are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in North Las Vegas, and providing the jobs of the future for our residents and for those who live throughout the valley. With daily progress being made on expanding water service to Apex, the possibilities are endless!
The City is also partnering with the Pacific Group to solve many of the healthcare challenges facing Southern Nevada. The Pacific Group will develop a new medical campus adjacent to the North Las Vegas VA Hospital, set to break ground later this year. Pacific Group expects to invest up to $5 billion to bring a hospital, medical research and development facilities, medical offices and supporting businesses to the 135-acre property over the next 5-10 years. This will be a transformative project that will benefit all of Southern Nevada.
We are also focused on our small businesses, which are the backbone of our community. Our first-of-its-kind North Las Vegas Small Business Connector, a unique one-stop shop inside City Hall, brings together business owners, entrepreneurs, jobseekers and financing. With our tremendous partners from UNLV’s Small Business Development Center, Access Community Capital and Workforce Connections, we have helped more than 400 small businesses by providing expertise to launch and expand, providing affordable loans to entrepreneurs and startups, and connecting employers with prospective employees. More than 75% of the businesses we have helped are veteran-, woman- and minority-owned!
As quickly as our business community is growing, so are our neighborhoods. Since leading Clark County in new home construction in 2020, sales of new and previously owned homes in North Las Vegas have not slowed down. Smart water meters are being installed for all residential utility customers, and at a time when the cost of goods and services are rising, we reduced sewer rates for our customers. This is good government at work!
This strategic growth, by design, is positioning North Las Vegas as the top place to live, work and play in Nevada! Whether you are looking to start a business or expand your operations, the City of North Las Vegas is here to support you. Contact the Economic Development team today by clicking here.
