County Commissioners and the Clark County School District turned the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign blue in support of CCSD’s ‘Week of Respect’ campaign.
“This week we come together to ask everyone to be respectful of each other,” Commission Vice Chairman Lawrence Weekly said. “With so many things dividing us in world today, it is important to remember that we can disagree respectfully. We can talk about our differences and find our common ground, but it all starts with having respect for each other.”
The first week of October has been declared the Week of Respect in Nevada. Residents are asked to show their support for this effort by wearing blue on Friday, Oct. 9.
Vice Chairman Weekly and CCSD representatives turned on blue light bulbs that surround the border of the sign. Those lights are normally yellow
Like the famed Las Vegas Strip, the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign is in unincorporated Clark County.
Clark County is a dynamic and innovative organization dedicated to providing top-quality service with integrity, respect and accountability. With jurisdiction over the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and covering an area the size of New Jersey, Clark is the nation’s 11th-largest county and provides extensive regional services to more than 2.3 million citizens and 45.3 million visitors a year. Included are the nation’s 9th-busiest airport, air quality compliance, social services and the state’s largest public hospital, University Medical Center. The County also provides municipal services that are traditionally provided by cities to about 1 million residents in the unincorporated area. Those include fire protection, roads and other public works, parks and recreation, and planning and development.
