The Las Vegas City Council will recognize 10 individuals and businesses for their historic preservation efforts at the Wednesday, May 15, City Council meeting that will begin following the 8:30 a.m. Redevelopment Agency meeting in City Hall council chambers, located at 495 S. Main St.
The city’s Historic Preservation Commission will join the City Council in presenting the award as part of National Preservation Month. The annual recognition celebrates the role of history and the contributions made to preserve the tangible aspects of our shared heritage. The El Cortez hotel-casino and the Neon Museum are among this year’s honorees.
In addition, Mayor Pro Tem Stavros S. Anthony will recognize Ward 4 elementary students from The Meadows, Ruthe Deskin and Mountain View Lutheran schools. The youngsters participated in the Great American Pride Program, an effort that requires fifth-graders be able to recite the Gettysburg Address, the names of the presidents, states and capitals, the national anthem, the preamble to the Constitution and the Pledge of Allegiance.
Also, Councilman Steven D. Ross is scheduled to recognize a group of students who won the 2013 Future Cities Competition, an engineering program for sixth, seventh and eighth-graders.
The City Council will also recognize National Women’s Health Week, and the Employee of the Month.
