LAS VEGAS, NV – North Las Vegas City Council unanimously approved an oversize agreement that will create a water line serving the city’s Apex Industrial Park, remedying what Mayor John Lee called a "two decades-old problem."
The agreement will bring 12 miles of pipeline from North Hollywood Blvd. near Interstate 15 to serve the southern part of the industrial complex, according to the city. The city said it will install a $4 million water tank connected to an existing city well to provide water for the northern part of the industrial complex.
Construction will begin within two months and be completed by 2020, the city said. The city said it is working with Solo Investments I, LLC and MMesa319, LLC on the project. The estimated cost is $54.2 million.
The city hopes water will lead to further development of the land, and job creation.
"This was a goal I set before becoming Mayor," Lee said in a release. "To expand out city’s tax base and create new opportunities for our residents, and thanks to the work of our council and staff, Apex will soon be the economic breadbasket for the entire southern Nevada region."
"A historic moment last night in @CNLV as the Mayor and City Council approved an oversize agreement providing a life line to the Apex Industrial Park! Water will soon be flowing to 3,000 acres of prime indurtsial property thanks to the City and their partner MMesa319!," Apex Industrial Park wrote on Twitter.
The park’s website lists hundreds of acres of available land and says the park is "ripe for renewable energy development."

Our city leaders did what others said was impossible and solved a two decade-year-old problem! This infrastructure will enable Apex to finally reach its full potential, create tens of thousands of jobs and add likely more than $1B in capital investment to our regional economy https://t.co/iPnI8cJfmk— North Las Vegas City (@CNLV) April 19, 2018
