Station Casinos clears hurdle for new North Las Vegas resort

The Culinary Union, which has butted heads with Station for years, voiced its opposition to the project with a representative telling the commission that the proposal appears to be “speculative zoning” and “does not serve the community at large.”

State Sen. Pat Spearman, whose district covers North Las Vegas, told the panel she was there “on behalf of the 5,000-plus workers who’ve lost their jobs, can barely pay their rent, and they’re hanging by just a little thin thread of hope. But they haven’t thrown in the towel, and that’s why they’re here this evening.”

She asked for an agreement that people who lost their jobs at the shuttered hotels would be the first hired at the new one.
