Clark County Employment Land Study
The Employment Land Study identifies the industrial sites in the county that are ready for development and those in varying states of readiness – an important baseline to inform policymakers and service providers as they seek to respond to challenges to replenishing our inventory of sites for jobs. The target audiences for this project include policymakers and elected officials, business leaders and groups, local site selectors, and the public.
The purpose of Phase 1 was to determine the supply and readiness of employment sites within Clark County to meet short- and long-term market demand for employment growth and development. CREDC commissioned this study in efforts to understand regulation impacts and the impact of infrastructure availability throughout Clark County. This work is based on publicly available regional data sources and is not intended to be used to inform specific development decisions on sites. This data should not be used in lieu of site specific due diligence reports.
Sites analyzed in Phase 2 of this study were chosen from the site inventory that represent a variety of development barriers found in employment sites throughout Clark County. The select Phase 2 sites were chosen to illustrate challenges of bringing Tier 2 and Tier 3 sites to Tier 1 development-ready status. The Phase 2 analysis focused on both the costs and time required to make the sites development ready. The intent is to inform the project partners of the impacts of these barriers on site development, and to evaluate how the public sector can have a positive influence in the development of industries that support community goals. Additionally, the analysis identified the potential economic benefits resulting from the conceptual investment and development of the individual sites.
