Face to Face’ poll: Is downtown redevelopment worth the cost?

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman will be on "Face to Face With Jon Ralston" tonight to talk about the Mob Museum, City Hall and the open seat on the City Council.

The city of Las Vegas spent $42 million on the Mob Museum and $185 million on a new City Hall, then sold the existing City Hall for $18 million to a downtown developer who is leasing it to Zappos, a company expected to have a significant economic impact on downtown.

Tell us what you think about the city's redevelopment efforts:
