Assuming this is drawn close to scale, note how little of the actual area of NLV is south of Cheyenne, i.e., "Old NLV".

I wonder what the population distribution is between the southern part "Old NLV" and the new northern parts?

Prior to 1990, almost all the population of NLV was south of Lake Mead Blvd, a relatively tiny portion of the area belonging to today's city of North Las Vegas.

Actually the more densely populated area was south of Cheyenne, but there were scattered neighborhoods to just north of Craig. Mostly custom homes on large rural lots. You're right it was about 1990 that NLV started spreading north. When I moved from the Decatur and Lone Mountain area in 2001, the three of the corners of Ann and Decatur were bare. Decatur dead ended there and Ann was mostly dirt going east. I-215 was just an idea. Now, isn't NLV larger than Reno?

I remember going to see model homes at and near Aliante back in early 2003. (March)There were dirt roads and very bumpy rutty ones at that to even get there! I still have photos of all the empty space all around there from the early days of Aliante.
They didn't start building on the north side of the beltway until 2005. There were just dirt roads there too. Go look at it now and it goes way past Grand Teton.

I wonder why I can't find Police AREA MAPS on the internet for most of the Las Vegas valley? When I try to find where the high crime Las Vegas "BOLDEN" area is, all I find are vague, almost meaningless area descriptions.

The police area map for North Las Vegas, in contrast, makes things much easier. Why does the LVMPD has a web site with links that reference area commands but doesn't provide a map to show where they are?

I am not sure the Bolden Area is high crime per se. It has some ugly areas that is true...but I believe actually scores below other districts. I suspect the districts may be set up to have roughly equal crime.

To see them go to the crimeview site...

http://www.lvmpd.com/crimeviewcommunity/wizard.asp

set it up. On where ask for borders, police districts and BA. That will get you a map. That may will show zip districts. zoom in it will show streets.

I stay out of North LV due to crime, pro-gun control local gov't and higher taxes.

asik, be careful what you say. I'll bet that because you, like me, avoid NLV people will tell you to move to another state because they don't like you. It's very sensitive in here. Lots of Kool-aid being shared these days.

Yes, I have noticed a very PC-brainwashed crowd here. Nice to know there are other normal folk posting.
