Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Months after monsoon rains and the devastating runoff from the Carpenter 1 wildfire created a rock-filled ravine along Grand Teton, the road at the end of the Centennial Point neighborhood is still closed.
Boulders still line the street, the sidewalk is still destroyed, fencing still isn't fixed and the damage may stay that way for some time.
Action News has learned the City of Las Vegas is working with the Centennial Point HOA on a permanent fix to prevent future flooding, but the drainage project won't be done until after the next monsoon season.
A spokesman for the homeowners association sent Action News a statement which reads, in part, "To spend a lot of money on something on a solution only needed for 18 months may not be the way to go, but putting everything back only to get possibly destroyed again would mean all of the money spent would literally be washed away."
However, the Centennial Point HOA is inviting residents to attend the next board meeting to weigh in on what they think should be done to repair and protect their neighborhood.
