December's Monthly Economic Development Update
Elected Clark County Assessor Michele Shafe addressed the LEDC Leadership Speakers forum open to the public on November 14, 2013. "The Assessor is required by Nevada law to discover, list and value all real and personal property within the county," explains Shafe. The Assessor's mission is to perform accurate and equitable assessment functions to serve the public, with a vision of being the most technologically advanced, user friendly assessor's office in the Country.
Laughlin residents learned the process the Assessor goes through in determining property taxes and they received in depth information about the current tax environment within the Laughlin township. Shafe presented breakdowns of taxable values for residential, commercial, industrial and casino properties. Residents learned about exemption programs and had the opportunity to ask questions and address their concerns. For an in depth analysis on the property tax structure in Laughlin please contact us to speak with our local developers and real estate professionals.

November's Monthly Economic Development Update
Clark County orders a "best use plan" for the 9,000 acres of land sitting on the Laughlin side of the Colorado River. This is the same land that ENN Energy had an option to purchase which expired in June 2013, due to the inability to secure a power purchase agreement. The purpose of the economic study is to determine "what it is we have and what someone can do with it," so that Clark County may put forth a marketing strategy for potential developers.
Members of the LEDC will follow the study over the next 60 days and offer any assistance to RCG Economics as they perform their due diligence of the 9,000 acre site. Their findings will be made available to the public, at which time the LEDC will utilize RCG's data to assist with our efforts of attracting new businesses for economic development in Laughlin.
