Question:

Las Vegas as well as many other cities have several building projects that are started but not completed. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question . . . What should be done with these started but not completed projects all along the prime real estate of the Las Vegas Strip? Do you have any suggestions? What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

PLEASE NOTE: The following text entries are the exact words of our readers

Reader Poll Replies:

I think they should be made to finish a fake front on them so they are not such an eye soar.  Linda D.  Las Vegas, NV

Understanding they are out of money or they would have finished the projects, I feel they could at least place plants and make a fake looking landscape to the front of the property that faces the main streets.   Kenny L.  New Jersey

According to many of the financial newsletters I read, the economy will not really be back for years - maybe never. To maintain a respectable appearance for what will remain, the owners of these properties should be given 6-9 months to find a buyer who contracts to
commence building, or the property is condemned, torn down, and removed.  This is sad and drastic, but must be done...... Dr. H. James Habeger  St. John, IN

 I also think a fake front should at least be made to save the Strip's look!  Micheline  Brussels Belgium

Things all over are bad .  vegas should stop all projects for now. When things get better then go again.  Jim Miller  worcester.ma

Great topic! I will be visiting in three weeks and I must admit I am a little anxious about what I will encounter, especially bringing along a few 'newbies' with me. Perhaps large tarps of what the completed projects are supposed to look like when finished, hung from the prospective buildings? Let's remember that Vegas is the place where dreams are made. Can we at least Try and bring an element of hopefulness back to the jewel of the desert??   Lucynda B  Blasdell, NY

I think the world is in a terrible economic crunch and not sure you can ask people who went into bankruptcy or feel on hard times and did not finish a project to spend more money.  These unfinished projects are filled with lawyers and people already arguing over money and not sure you can ask them to make any improvement to their unfinished eye sore.   Robert M.  Chicago, IL

Maybe some kind of fast track system can be in place like they did for General Motors and thus allow a continuation of building either by the newly reconstructed company or by selling off the non completed building.  Mary Ann  Charlotte NC
