A neighborhood meeting is planned at 5:30 p.m. June 5 at the Centennial Hills YMCA, 6601 N. Buffalo Drive, for public input on a proposed Dollar Loan Center at 6401 N. Durango Drive.
The center does not require a special use permit, but Michelle Thackston, special assistant to Ward 6 Las Vegas Councilman Steve Ross, said Ross remains uneasy about the proposal.
“Councilman Ross told the landowner that this type of use is hard for him to support,” Thackston said.
Thackston added that Ross asked the owner, Centennial Durango Partners LLC, to seek feedback during a neighborhood meeting.
For more information, contact Malana Tice, the landowner’s legal representative, at 702-792-7063.
