Question:
Do you think a moratorium should be placed on the building of high rise condos and casinos in Las Vegas? Many people feel the city is getting over built, even though Vegas averages more than 5,000 people monthly who move to Vegas over the past five years. What do you think?
Reader Poll Replies:

I feel Vegas is doing fine without any building restrictions.  Let the city grow at the pace the developers want to put their money into the project.  Anna D.  NY

* To ask Las Vegas to stop building new casinos is like asking Disneyworld to stop adding new rides.  Sandy Nicholson

No way, there is a whole desert out there waiting to be developed.  Walt Cooper  Manhattan KS

*  I believe Vegas is and will continue to be way overbuilt in nightclubs and casinos because many states are getting their own casinos. People will decide eventually to stay home and lose their money in their home state. Vegas is already overpriced on buffets, shows and rooms and developers like Steve Wynn don't make it any easier for the working class to enjoy Vegas, unless you don't care about the little guy. When the hammer falls, guess who has to bail Vegas out? Not Steve Wynn!!  Thank You, A Vegas Lover.  Carrol Tapper Hanover MD

* We've been visiting LV for the past 18 years. Some changes are good, but if you aren't very young and healthy, it's difficult to get around the "too large" casinos. You can't locate your partner and the distance between casinos is awful. For the past 4 years we have stayed on Freemont St. It's more convenient and friendlier. Distance between casinos is much better. We seldom visit the "Strip". These new places are nice to see once, but I wouldn't spend much time gambling in them.  Pat Grieves Wapakoneta OH

* To me Vegas is and always will be about the biggest and best there is, so why should their buildings not reflect this? After all the casinos where there long before most of the residences. Vegas has had a steady population growth and it is now these newcomers, who were initially attracted to the big city lights and glamour, who now want things to change. I say lets see what they can dream up next. Every time I come to Vegas I am amazed at the new buildings that have sprung up, the imagination of the designer and the expertise of the builders and the architects who bring the dream to life. I say, 'the sky's the limit!'  Kim French

*   I don't think there should be any restrictions on the building of high rise condos or casinos in Vegas. The people with the money to build new structures have most likely done their homework and will not spend their money to build something that will not be necessary. It's all a matter of supply and demand.  Jan Harris  Tucson  AZ

I think there needs to be a moratorium placed on the building of timeshares in Las Vegas. When my husband and I visit Vegas we have to pretend to either not know each other or pretend every day of our trip is our last so we don't get hounded every 10-20 steps we take. As for building casinos, I don't think Vegas is being overbuilt. If a new casino goes up, it's probably because they knocked one down to make room. As for high rise condos there are too many but we all secretly wish we owned one! Tammy Turnbill  Tipp City Ohio

*  I think that if they can keep renting the new rooms and solve the problem of getting a water supply that can handle the growth then the growth should continue.  It will help make Las Vegas a major city in the United States besides being a vacation site.  David Ralls  Eagan Minnesota

* I like Vegas the way it is, I think they should stop building and cater to the existing customers rather than build icons to themselves and then expect the players to pay for them.  D. A.  IL
