Where is the effort to revitalize Las Vegas' Commercial Center at today?

More than a year ago, Clark County spent hundreds of thousands of dollars throwing a party at Commercial Center, the oldest outdoor mall still standing in Las Vegas.

It’s on Sahara Avenue, just west of Maryland Parkway.

The property was fenced in, and free tickets were available for customers to see Deadmau5. Some businesses were irritated that the event blocked potential customers from their stores.

The county also put up a large tent with amenities for potential investors to hang out, to see the property and to consider investing in Commercial Center.

Did it work? Since then, Clark County has spent its own money buying a portion of the mall, New Orleans Square, for $6.5 million dollars.

But what about redevelopment? Improvement?

Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom’s district includes Commercial Center. He threw the party last year with fellow Commissioner Ross Miller.

We reached out to Miller, but he again turned down a request to join us.

Guests: Tick Segerblom, commissioner, Clark County; Nancy Good, business owner and artist
