LAS VEGAS >> An effort to tame the often rowdy gauntlet of street performances that has been turning off some tourists on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas is set to be considered by the City Council Wednesday morning.
The city proposal developed with input from the Nevada ACLU and street performers requires street entertainers register with the city and reserve one of 25 to 38 spots along the pedestrian mall.
The effort is aimed at creating order without limiting free speech and doesn’t bar any lewd or lascivious costumes.
The city says reservations for the six-foot circular spaces would be required from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. and be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Each performer would rotate to a new circle to perform at the top of every odd hour.
