The Wasteland

golfcourse.jpg

There's a golf course 50 miles north of Las Vegas, sitting in the middle of nowhere. It's called Coyote Springs, and builders hoped it would be a boomtown. But like much of the city now, it stopped growing when the economy went bust. How does an entire landscape of abandoned homes and strip malls affect us as Las Vegans? Are we more cynical about a fast recovery, or are we still optimistic? Were the experts wrong? And if we do start building again, what direction should we go in? How does the stalled growth of the city affect you? We want to hear from you.
