The SNEC was established to address the preservation of historic neighborhoods within certain designated areas considered the urban core of the Las Vegas Valley. These areas as defined in Assembly Bill 304 determine the geographic jurisdiction for the SNEC.
The board's primary purpose is to:
1. Advise the governmental entities that have members on the Board with respect to the Project;
2. Identify projects that may be eligible for federal funding or funding through city and county redevelopment
authorities, and request appropriations for those projects from the Clark County Board of County Commissioners, the
Las Vegas City Council and the North Las Vegas City Council or the governing boards of their respective redevelopment
3. Carry out such additional projects as may be directed by the Legislature; and
4. Ensure that the needs and opinions of the residents of the Community are reflected adequately by the project and any additional projects assigned to the Board.
To apply for the board, you must be residents of the "Community." The “Community” consists of the nine census tracts designated by President William Jefferson Clinton on December 21, 1994 (see the map below).
