The Hoover Dam Gateway Center Master Plan (HDGC), is a Master Plan calling for the development of 500+ acres of city owned land in the El Dorado Valley, with 9 MILLION square feet of new commercial uses that potentially includes a truck stop, fast food restaurants, visitor center, hotel and conference center, outlet centers, light industrial manufacturing, warehousing and distribution centers, office buildings up to 150 foot tall, and chain restaurants. This massive commercial/ industrial project is to be located south of the Railroad Pass Casino, on city owned land surrounding of the new I-11/U.S. 95 interchange.
Land Lease will bring tax revenue to BC
Convenience to travelers on I-11
New Welcome Center
Creates a second business corridor for the city
Design standards focusing on the history of Boulder City
Already cost taxpayers $170,644.19
$123 million infrastructure cost
Would negatively affect current Downtown businesses, restaurants and hotels through cannibalization
150 Ft buildings would change our City’s skyline and impact views
Could allow access to developers to build out privately owned land in nearby unincorporated Clark County that is located in the El Dorado Valley by providing them access to new infrastructure
Against the current City Master Plan by developing in areas not contiguous to existing development
While this plan is a well laid out plan for a new business center, Boulder City is not ready for such a development. Our businesses are struggling now, and if we draw the tourist market AWAY from our Downtown and Business District our current businesses will suffer. Our Utility rates are increasing to pay for an already outdated infrastructure. Where will the funds come from to pay for the new infrastructure miles outside of our current footprint? We can have new commercial growth where the infrastructure already exists, that is, in the vacant parcels in our existing Industrial Park accessible from Industrial Road and Veterans Memorial Drive. We would instead encourage our City Leaders and our Chamber of Commerce to focus on building out the areas of land we already have encompassed in our City’s footprint. We need positive growth, not growth that will harm our existing City.
