las-vegasA powerful union in the Las Vegas entertainment and gambling world is leading a fight to halt plans for a new city hall, which is part of wider planning changes it opposes to development in one of America’s fastest growing metropolitan areas.

The Culinary union expanded its challenge to a new Las Vegas city hall this week and announced a signature drive for ballot measures that could radically alter, or upend, the city’s downtown redevelopment efforts, reports Alan Choate in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Culinary leaders say they’re worried about the city’s push to finance a multimillion-dollar project at a time when the city is trying to cut costs to make ends meet. They also said redevelopment incentives for downtown projects divert money from other public needs.
