The city of Las Vegas was founded on May 15, 1905, when a land auction, in what is now known as downtown Las Vegas, resulted in the purchase of 110 acres of land. The city incorporated on March 16, 1911, and until 1944, operated under a "commission" form of government with each commissioner having administrative control over certain operating departments of the city. Since January 1, 1944, the city of Las Vegas has operated under what is commonly known as a "council/manager" form of government. This form of government was approved by a vote of the people with subsequent Las Vegas City Charter adoption by the legislature. Click Here for the City Website

Clark County -- the nation's 15th-largest county -- is a wonderfully diverse place, and our government is organized to meet those myriad needs. First, it provides urban services. In fact, more people live in urban Clark County than in any of Southern Nevadas cities, including the city of Las Vegas. Geographically, this area of the unincorporated county includes the Las Vegas Strip and takes in McCarran International Airport, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and, of course, the neighborhoods where our residents live, work and play.
