Gambling On Inclusionary Zoning In Las Vegas

As housing prices in Las Vegas begin to push out the middle class, even Sin City starts to think about inclusionary zoning

Mayor Oscar Goodman's "desire to assure the rising cost of real estate doesn't deprive Las Vegas neighborhoods of diversity has led him of late to speak out in favor of so-called inclusionary zoning, a policy he believes would spawn neighborhoods where blue and white collar workers and their children mingle. He highlighted the idea in his State of the City address and held forth on it at a recent gathering of the U.S. Conference of Mayors and again last week before local developers... Inclusionary zoning opponents agree land prices are a problem. But they believe it's one government created and should solve by making more land available."
