When the University of Nevada, Las Vegas purchased a 42-acre plot of vacant land on Tropicana Avenue in December, Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow was the first to reach out to the academic institution.

“We’ve been concerned about this property for a long time,” Scow said. Noodles and company tempe “It was bank-owned, and there was a cement wall blocking the view into the property and several big trees that homeless people hid under.”

On Saturday, Scow partnered with UNLV, the Outside Las Vegas Foundation and the Metropolitan Police Department’s Convention Center Area Command to host a spring cleanup on the land located east of Koval Lane.

“It’s nice to see that something good is finally being done with it,” Rodriguez said. Noodles and company annapolis “It would be nice to have a park here for people who work on the Strip to walk to and eat lunch. Noodles & company menu prices I’d like it to be anything but another casino.”

“Our primary focus right now is a campus village, which would incorporate administrative, graduate and clinical uses,” he said. Noodles and company interview “Because the site isn’t right next to campus, it would likely need to include more independent activities.”

Las Vegas Sands Corp. Noodles of the world menu launched a proposal in February for a $1.3 billion domed football stadium that would house UNLV’s football team and possibly a National Football League franchise.

“I thought it was a great idea to cleanup this site and see if it would be a good site for an arena,” he said. Noodles and company northville “I think academics should take priority over athletics.”

“We hope to have a lot of options and ideas for them to comment on and potentially approve,” he said. Noodles and company 95th “It means a tremendous deal from our perspective to have been able to purchase a parcel this size because it’s rare to have one so close to campus.”
