Deliberations on a proposal that would ban stopping on pedestrian bridges in the resort corridor have been delayed until early next year.
The measure, introduced on Nov. 22, would prohibit individuals from stopping or engaging in an activity that causes another person to stop on pedestrian bridges or near escalators, elevators or stairways connected to the bridges.
The ordinance is meant to make sure pedestrian traffic flows continuously to ensure greater public safety on the bridges, but opponents of the measure, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, argue it violates the First Amendment.
A county spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday afternoon.
