Suggestion Box: The fight over city hall

The fight over Las Vegas’ new city hall was resolved this week, with the state Supreme Court overturning an effort by the Culinary Union to put all such projects up to a public vote. We applaud the court’s decision (the union’s ballot language was pretty vague), but we also can’t fault the union for trying to force more careful planning in the future. Up until a few years ago, Las Vegas got away with rampant development, but we would suggest, in light of the number of Strip projects now lying fallow, that our fair city stop rubber-stamping every project that comes along.
