Video: Fee waivers for new "job creation permits"

To help create jobs, a temporary resolution waives development building and traffic impact fees for commercial start-ups, expansions or tenant remodels. Projects became eligible for the fee waiver June 11, 2013. The program will sunset when Clark County’s unemployment rate is equal to or less than the state’s, but the Board of County Councilors can end the program any time.
