Nelson, Brad OH-03282 2017 October 30 Building Las Vegas Oral History Project With 15 years of planning experience, a Bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture with emphasis on Urban Planning, and an M.S. degree in Urban Planning, Brad Nelson had no hesitation in accepting an offer from Mark Fine to move to Henderson to help master plan Green Valley. Arriving with his wife and two young children in 1984, he set to work on entitlements and master planning. He recalls planning various parcels, the village of Silver Springs, the village of Fox Ridge, the Fountains, and the Green Valley Athletic Club. He discusses the Green Valley ethos of planning for a good quality of family life by making space for churches, schools, and parks; providing a variety of housing price points, public art, and open space and working with homeowners' associations; and developing golf courses, fighting the "Water Wars" of the 1970s and 1980s, and introducing SPUIs--Single Point Urban Interchanges. He remembers staying with American Nevada Corporation until 1999, when he was recruited by Ron Boeddeker, to take over as the COO of Lake Las Vegas. Boeddeker's vision of creating LLV as a resort community was ultimately thwarted by distance and the economy. Nelson left in 2006, when the Park Cattle Co. of Minden, NV, hired him to help them manage their portfolio of land, casinos, and the Edgewood Golf Course in Lake Tahoe. After reorganizing and rebranding the company as Edgewood Companies, he retired in 2010, and returned to Southern Nevada and Lake Las Vegas.
