Commission decides against moving on Strip news rack ban

The Clark County Commission has put off a ban on news racks along the Strip and instead will work with owners of the racks to come up with a compromise that limits obstructions for pedestrians.
The issue: Commissioners considered an ordinance that would have banned all news racks along Las Vegas Boulevard from Russell Road to Sahara Avenue.

The vote: No action was taken on the item.

What it means: News rack owners will be able to keep their boxes on the Strip for at least the next few months and potentially longer.

The ban, which would have taken effect Jan. 1 and affected several hundred news racks, was intended to help reduce obstructions that contribute to pedestrian congestion along the sidewalk.
