    LV has scrapped some structural inspections - By VALERIE MILLER and JOAN WHITELY, Las Vegas Review - Journal
    The city of Las Vegas is no longer conducting structural reviews on some buildings as tall as four stories, strip malls, tract homes and big-box stores such as Costco.

    Unlike Clark County and nearby cities, the Las Vegas Department of Building and Safety is relying on the word of the architects and engineers submitting plans that their buildings meet specifications and will not collapse from gravity, high wind or seismic activity. The move, detailed in an April 11 city document, puts those larger structures in the same category as carports, gazebos and balconies.

    The new guidelines were issued in the midst of the Las Vegas building department's elimination of 31 positions because of the construction slowdown. The city has laid off four of its five structural plan reviewers.
