Here in Reno, we often don't look toward our neighbors in the South for great redevelopment ideas...not that Vegas is a bad influence, it's just, that city is headed in a different direction than Reno.

But here's one project out of Las Vegas that I hope Reno emulates. Check it out, and attend Las Vegas Parklett Friday at noon at Nevada Museum of Art.
