Development 16,000+ Acres

North Las Vegas has a vision: to create a balanced community for residents – that offers a wide variety of housing from entry level to executive, quality neighborhood shopping, a regional shopping mall as well as a wide variety of parks and recreational facilities. The City Council and staff are committed to making North Las Vegas a great place to live, work and play. The development of over 16,000 acres of the Bureau of Land Management(BLM) land located at the northern boundary of our city allows the opportunity to implement the following goals in a dramatic manner:

  • Planned and quality growth
  • Extended parks, recreation and leisure opportunities
  • Safe communities
  • Financially sound City government providing high quality, responsive services

The City of North Las Vegas took a major step on the May 9,2001 BLM auction in realizing these goals through the initial sale of 1,905 acres (Aliante) to a development consortium led by American Nevada Corporation and the Del Webb Corporation, which paid $47.2 million for the parcel. Although the City has recently adopted all new design standards for residential, multi-family, commercial and industrial development, the City acknowledges that, as a requirement for entry into the realm of master-planned development, specific design standards will be required for the new areas.

Park Highlands
On November 16, 2005, Park Highlands paid $639 million for 2,675 acres of BLM (Bureau of Land Management) owned land.

The proposed number of homes are 15,750, over 28 acres of neighborhood commercial, 113 regional commercial, and 118 acres offering a mix of commercial and residential uses. Under the Development Agreement between the City and Park Highlands, they will be required to donate land for a fire station, five elementary schools, a middle school, and 130 acres of parks and trails. Park Highlands must also build and partially equip a fire station, construct a police command station and a library for the development, which will be adjacent to a 300-acre conservation area set aside by the BLM.
