Downtown Vegas Gets a Makeover

The City of Las Vegas has suffered greatly over the course of the past two years. The global recession has caused many companies and business to shut down, forcing many residents to lose their jobs. However, things seem to be looking up. The Las Vegas Strip is ready for a new beginning, and what better way to make it happen with a makeover for the popular tourist area?

Freemont Street has seen influx of new business, bringing new life to an area that was all but dead a couple of weeks ago. This is what Mayor Oscar Goodman had in mind several years ago when he planned for a revitalization of the area. However, the economy had other plans and forced the city into a financial downward spiral.

To encourage the opening of more businesses in the area, the City of Las Vegas has offered to waive the $20 000 licensing fee for bars. These new business will certainly bring more tax dollars into the city, improving the economy substantially. They will also bring many more jobs back to a city that has been struggling for years with is dismal unemployment rate.

Things are certainly looking up for the Las Vegas Strip, and it is only a matter of time until it is restored to its former glory.
