What are the requirements by Nevada state law if someone decides to build a new tourist city from scratch with empty land? I like the land location between Austin, NV and Kingston, NV in Big Smoky Valley area, and I would name my new tourist city "Durango, NV" (unofficial).

This Big Smoky Valley area has the absolute lowest natural disaster reported (other than tiny earthquakes that no one will notice in lifetime) in whole United States because of two mountain ranges protecting all wind, fog, and extreme bad weather. Land there is very desirable, peaceful, and ultra-safe. Maybe someone will get there before me.

I like to be a game changer and innovator who doesn't like to follow everyone else living in continuing urban sprawl and unaffordable housing. Based on my ethnic business background, I can form alliance with tour companies from China, and there will be direct, non-stop flight from Beijing to Durango, NV. The official language there will be both English and Chinese written on same board everywhere, the only city in United States.

For starter, I probably will build a small hotel casino resort with a large bar scene attracting Millennials, along with a big coliseum GA venue designed to handle a similar "Burning Man" event currently taking place in Black Rock Desert yearly, while adapting to new socialism quality of life. Word gets spread out by tourists from this influential city and beautiful scenery, they want to buy a house there, and the rest is history with fast-growth population and job creation.

Sorry if I sound like I'm just daydreaming, and I know it may not happen, but I'm kind of anxious to build this kind of business, actually. Any opinions are appreciated. Did I select an awesome location for generations to come?

So, you want to build a socialist casino resort (for profit, I assume) in the middle of literally nowhere (not even on I-50, the "loneliest road in America"), for millennials from China. And, of course, you'll need a huge runway for the wide-body jets coming from China....

Good luck with that.

Not really socialist, but as a family-friendly tourist city dealing with China. Either way that comes first is fine with me. It's on I-50 road, actually, at I-376 interchange corner I like to build. New airport and runway will be handled by Nevada government (not me). I'm just a founder and first mayor, that's all.

Never mind what I wrote (don't think about it), everything is in very-early stage. This is 50-year progress.

Have you ever actually been there, or just pick this off a map?

It's hot and dry in the summer and can get pretty damn cold in the winter. A truly more miserable place is rare. You are right, though. It is pretty. But nobody is gonna go there.

EDIT: and the problem is water.

Seriously, there are only two airports in the state that can handle wide-body planes (not counting military), Reno and Vegas. So why would the government want to build another one just for you way out on I-50?

Are you just speculating, or assuming it's inhabitable? This area has the absolute lowest natural disaster or other extreme weather reported in entire whole United States. Only 4 recorded since 1950. No other US city or town come close at all. I dare you find another one. Type in your hometown city, and you'll be surprised to see how many other extreme weather reported in your area since 1950.

Kingston, NV Natural Disasters and Weather Extremes - USA.com™

Now, compare to Dallas, TX (for example):

Dallas, TX Natural Disasters and Weather Extremes - USA.com™

That makes Kingston, NV 1,631 times safer than Dallas, TX. Someone needs to stay in Kingston, NV for 30 days if weather here is really peaceful and safe (other than few snowy days in winter).

Water supply should not be a problem at all.

Why would the Chinese fly 15 hours to be in a dessert when there are plenty of similar landscapes in China?

This is really a dumb idea. No water for one thing. Why do you think it would not be a problem? Have you ever been here? The state of Nevada will not build you an airport. There is a reason the area has ghost towns.

376 is not an interstate. Did you even check out the altitudes near Austin? 7000’. We have encountered snow there in November. It is a windy area that is very sparsely populated. The main occupation is ranching.

Last thing. If you want to research building and starting a new town, google Coyote Springs. And it's even close to Vegas.
