The Following Excerpt was written when the Association was young, and there were many challenges to overcome at that time. Some of the Actual and perceived challenges came when Sadler reached out to Property & Business Owners, and Clark County Various Departments-mainly the Clark County Redevelopment from 2005-2009. At the time it was found out that the County’s Plan was to Tear Down the Entire Center and Surrounding Area from Joe Brown to Maryland Pkwy and start fresh. Sadler and many others were opposed to this redevelopment because it would have meant losing vital historic areas of Las Vegas and disproportionally displacing thousands of residents and hundreds of businesses and would have meant permanent closure for many. It was a long uphill battle; Sadler and several business and property owners came head-to-head with The County to Save Commercial Center & Billionaire Developers Sean Posner & The Posner Group Grandson of Victor Posner the Origianl Corporate Raider- Victor Posner was an American businessman. He was one of the highest-paid business executives of his generation. He was a pioneer of the leveraged buyout and became notorious for asset stripping. The aim was to have transparency and make sure the deals were fair and equitable and in good faith and interests to the many women and minority business owners that occupied commercial center. At the time no effort was made to inform Businesses of what was happening, there was a language and cultural barrier that was not addressed until Sadler stepped in to inform everyone at the table. Luckily Commercial Center was spared the Wrecking Ball, unfortunately in the battle The Historic Vegas Village Building was lost, with its outdoor Carousel, Clock Tower, Stained Glass, and Indoor Fountains. A timeless piece of Las Vegas History Lost to Redevelopment. The Land in which it occupied has been baron for Several years. Today in 2023 and beyond we are hoping to see another side of SOSA redevelopment. We do not want to lost any more of our precious Commercial Center History, Tearing Down Vegas Village would be like tearing down the Huntridge Theatre. We are watching closely to make sure our area is preserved for future Generations of Las Vegas Small Business owners.
