HENDERSON, NV-Henderson City officials are recommending the annexation of 33 acres directly across M Resort, a new suburban casino-resort development that sits well south of the airport at Las Vegas Boulevard at St. Rose Parkway, just inside the city limits of Henderson, according to documents compiled for the City Council’s review. Most of the property is controlled by M Resort investor Raymond Shapiro and is zoned tourist commercial, which allows for casino development.

A public hearing on the issue was pulled from last week’s agenda after the city attorney determined that the city’s charter requires that an annexation ordinance to be effective within 30 days of the public hearing. “That is not enough time to enter into a development agreement,” the city attorney’s office stated in its letter.”

Approximately 75% or 25 acres of the property is developable after accounting for public rights of way. Shapiro’s ownership prompted the annexation. The city is in support because it would then get to control development of the site. The US Bureau of Land Management, which owns nine developable acres, said it would not contest the annexation as long as Henderson put its head together with Clark County, which had previously eyed the site for affordable housing.

No date has been set for the item to come back before the City Council.
