Channel 8 talks Arts, Culture & Downtown Renaissance...

If the last 20 years has been about the Las Vegas Strip the next 20 will be about Downtown Las Vegas. With the redevelopment of the Las Vegas Arts District, the Fremont East Entertainment District and the old Union Pacific Railroad Yards the stage is set for a Renaissance that Downtown has yearned for years. I have been witnessing the change first hand and I am very excited to finally see it come into fruition. If Las Vegas is going to have a bright future it will be Downtown and those who live, work and play here that will make it happen.

Over the last several days KLAS Channel 8 has done some great reporting on the state of Downtown. I have linked the segments below. Enjoy!
