Streets

Elvis has three streets named after him. Streets are named by property owners and two did so in northern Las Vegas near the year 2000.  Take an excursion to visit Elvis Presley Court and Elvis Alive Drive.  Located a few miles from each other near Mt Charleston. Here is a map:  http://mapq.st/1ES9dMU

Elvis also has a street in the tourist corridor.  Former Riviera Blvd, a connector street between LV Blvd and Paradise Rd, was renamed Elvis Presley Blvd.  The road leads into the former Hilton, The Westgate.

Check out this website all about street naming and learn how it is done.  The government doesn't decide to force street names onto property owners.  Someone has to come up with the idea and fulfill all of the requirements both legal and financial.   Thanks to the Westgate, a property owner near the Riviera Blvd, their application for the name change was approved on May 19 2015.
