LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- Officials in Las Vegas, Nevada are looking to
purchase an LDS chapel located at 700 Lola Avenue to be used as the
city's first senior recreation center. The city has made an offer on the
building, but the LDS Church official charged with the decision is
recovering from the flu, so no decision has been reached yet.
Las Vegas Parks and Recreation Director Eric Dabney is hoping for a
decision this week since the LDS Church is currently considering two
other offers on the chapel, according to Dabney. The city's
redevelopment agency will consider Wednesday night setting aside
$100,000 towards the purchase of the property, one-fourth the estimated
price of the building.
The building would serve a need for the city, which has no dedicated
senior center in North Las Vegas.
