About two decades ago the intersection of Sahara and Decatur was one of the, if not the busiest intersections west of the Strip. It was the edge of the city before the development boom of the last ten years. Now that intersection and the Decatur corridor all the way up to the freeway has lost a lot of its luster. There are numerous shops and centers that sit empty and run down. The Las Vegas Economic and Urban Development Department has been looking at different parts of that corridor and deciding what areas are blight. Will that help or hurt any resurgence? And, has all the action just moved further west leaving the Decatur corridor to remain a shell of its former glory?
