Help Available for People Facing Foreclosure

The City of Las Vegas hosted a workshop Friday for people looking to save their homes from foreclosure.

Homeowners could talk face-to-face with loan specialists, housing counselors and attorneys about their individual situations. There was also a workshop to discuss general topics about foreclosure. In addition, lenders were on hand to talk with homeowners about their loans. 

The event was organized by Housing for Nevada and the Alliance for Stabilizing Communities. 

Another foreclosure workshop is set for Saturday at Palace Station Hotel and Casino inside the Grand Ballroom. The event starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. If you are interested in going to Saturday's event pre-register at 229-HOME, make sure to collect all important documents including:

Training Sessions Scheduled on New Development Code

The City of Las Vegas will hold two customer training sessions focused on the city’s newly adopted Unified Development Code.

The sessions will enable customers to stay current as well as ask questions about the code before it becomes effective on May 1, 2011. The one-hour sessions will each be held at 5 p.m. at the new Development Services Center, located at 333 N. Rancho Drive, in the third-floor Charleston Conference Room on Tuesday, April 19, and Tuesday, April 26.

On March 16, the Las Vegas City Council adopted a Unified Development Code (UDC) for the city of Las Vegas. The UDC replaces the existing Subdivision Regulations (Title 18) and Zoning Code (Title 19).

The UDC incorporates more graphic-oriented elements, resulting in a document that is more user-friendly while eliminating cross-referencing issues, contradictions and duplication of information.
