Culinary gathers signatures for initiative to undo downtown redevelopment plans

Thu, Dec 11 2008

The Culinary union expanded its challenge to a new Las Vegas city hall Tuesday and announced a signature drive for ballot measures that could radically alter, or upend, the city’s downtown redevelopment efforts.
Culinary leaders said they’re worried about the city’s push to finance a multi-million dollar project at a time when the city is trying to cut costs to make ends meet. They also said redevelopment incentives for downtown projects divert money from other public needs.
