Businesses in the Arts District not to attend Proposed 21 and weigh in under Fremont Street curfew

Las Vegas, Nev. (FOX5) – The proposed downtown Las Vegas under the 21 Fremont Street Curfew will include the Fremont Street experience and part of downtown, including Ogden, Carson, Main and 8th Streets. The proposed curfew, however, does not include the Arts District, another popular nightlife spot.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) confirmed that a shooting occurred in the Arts District on Sunday morning. This happened near South Main Street and East Imperial Avenue, leading to its closure.

Nevada Brew Works owner Jason Taylor said that despite the proximity, the Arts District doesn’t often have the same problems as Fremont Street.

“I’ve never seen a fight of any kind,” Taylor said. “We have never reported any dispute or any withdrawal of weapons. There’s nothing like it on our property or on our premises, but I’ve heard few and far between stories.”

The proposed curfew on Fremont Street means that no one under the age of 21 will be allowed to be on Fremont from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., seven days a week.

Taylor said a curfew in the Arts District would not be good for business.

“We don’t want a 9 p.m. curfew here,” Taylor said. “We still have families with heir children who are hanging out.”

On Monday, the Las Vegas City Council Committee voted for a proposed curfew to go back in front of the City Council at its next meeting. The vote was also for the city council to receive a report and presentation with data from the Fremont Street Experience and Metro Police on why this proposed curfew is needed.

The proposed curfew does not include the Arts District, and Taylor said it was the right move because his business is family-oriented.

“We have a different base of customers that you’re going to be landing on Fremont Street,” Taylor said. “I don’t think the arts district needs a curfew.”
