Opening City Center will help so much by dividing the pie in smaller pieces. The city council should have limited the number of Casinos instead of the number of pawn shops.
Its definitely a challenging time to be adding inventory but I do believe City Center will grow tourism in Las Vegas.
"Vegas has never been a gambling town; that is one of the biggest misconceptions of them all. Even in the early days of the '50s the Vegas spectacle was the town, not the gambling.
The reason people come to Vegas (per se) is for the "spectacle" that the casino life creates." -- Steve Wynn 11/12/1992 (Good Morning America)
City Center will bring in new visitors and repeat visitors to our city. Fontainebleau's delay is also a blessing in disguise, it will bring back the same people wanting to see the reinvented Vegas. Most certainly casinos and resorts that were built and under construction the last few years are of different and better quality.
If gaming win is higher than 2004 then the gaming tax is higher than 2004 for the government.
The state should return to the 2004 budget and thereby be in balance instead of proposing tax increases.
