Speculation has been on the AZ borders. The water problem does not presently appear solvable.

At this point it is Las Vegas or Las Vegas. There are not going to be any new satellites.
OK, if we want to get technical we can call them commuter communities.
Although, these cities might have much industry and commerce, the will/have experienced much of their growth due to their proximity to LV.

Definition:

"A commuter town is an urban community that is primarily residential, from which most of the workforce commute out to earn their livelihood. Most commuter towns are suburbs of a nearby metropolis that workers travel to daily, and many suburbs are commuter towns.
A commuter town may also be known as a bedroom community or "bedroom suburb"."

Dude that is the definition I am working off. The properties that would make a commutable city are not present in anything that exists. You could commute to Las Vegas from Mesquite but it is not oriented to the commute but to local recreation. It is too expensive for a commuter town. Same with Coyote Springs. Pahrump would work but has a very big water problem with no solution in sight.

There has been speculation on the AZ border region but again no solution to the water question. AZ likely has sufficient water but does not, so far, chose to use it for this purpose.

So as of now you simply continue to build Las Vegas. Very unlikely to change in the next 20 years.

reminds me of the time the furst F117 [stealth fighter] crashed....the Air Farce Public information guy held a press conference....
He said "There is no such thing as a Stealth Fighter"
"BUT if there were, one crashed this morning"

And he turned and left the room.....press conference over.....

For living, I'd only choose Vegas/Henderson. Mesquite would be the distant 3rd for me.

I visited Searchlight for the heck of it. Very small with a strong trailer park feel and look. At the same time, something interesting about that. I wouldn't live there though.

I liked Kingman, AZ on the list. I doubt if I'd live there either though. But it was a likeable enough place.

Anyways, the original post is from nearly 3 years ago...so all of the real estate in Vegas has changed. No one has to look that far out anymore. Very nice.
