New Las Vegas City Hall
Las Vegas residents planning to fight City Hall should make sure they go to the right place — there are actually two city hall buildings open for business this week.
Several offices open for the first time in the new City Hall, 495 Main St., on Tuesday, while others are still moving out of the older building, 400 Stewart Ave., through next Monday.
Offices at both locations are closed today in observance of the Presidents Day holiday.
Beginning on March 7, Las Vegas City Council meetings will be held in the new building. City Planning Commission meetings will begin March 13 at the new City Hall.
At the end of the month, the city turns the old City Hall complex over to Resort Gaming Group, which will lease it to Zappos.com for at least 15 years. Zappos is planning a $40 million makeover of the building and is expecting to move in during 2013.
Mayor Carolyn Goodman gave the media a tour of the new seven-story glassy futuristic-looking structure last week, explaining that several departments were to begin moving into their new digs over the weekend, getting ready for their first day of operation Tuesday.
If you visit the new City Hall on Tuesday, you can park in the new parking garage, at 500 Main St. And you'll find the following offices opening to the public at 10 a.m:
• City Clerk: second floor (the clerk's office will open at 8 a.m. Tuesday for candidates filing for the Ward 2 Special Election),
• City Attorney: sixth floor,
• City Auditor: sixth floor,
• Human Resources: second floor,
• Economic & Urban Development: sixth floor,
• Parks, Recreation & Neighborhood Services: fifth floor,
• Purchasing & Contracts: third floor.
The city's website will have updates on the status of the move and more detailed information on parking.
By Monday, Feb. 27, all City Hall departments, including those listed below, are all expected to be in the new building:
• Administrative Services: seventh floor,
• City Manager: seventh floor,
• Communications: seventh floor,
• Cultural Affairs: fourth floor,
• Finance: fourth floor,
• Information Technologies: fifth floor,
• KCLV, the city TV station: first floor,
• Mayor & City Council: seventh floor,
• Sewer Bill Payments: fourth floor.
